Apart of Me is a multi-award-winning therapeutic game. It was co-created by experts in child psychology and bereaved young people, and translates bereavement counselling techniques into a magical 3D world.
You will be transported to a beautiful, peaceful island where you will meet a variety of friendly creatures. You will be given a guide to support you along your journey. Your guide will help you to explore, accept, understand and articulate your experience of grief and the wide range of emotions connected to it.
As you progress through the game, you will discover your own strengths and wisdom. The island is a safe place where you can begin to process your grief at a pace that suits you, remember the person you have lost, and hear from others who know what it is like to lose someone you love.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app but....
I had to download the app for a class and found it to be a very helpful one. Hard to navigate at first but once I got the hang of things I got through it fairly easily. I very much enjoyed the real life stories from the cave, I also like the mindfulness simulation. This is a great app. I have a lot of students who have been affected by grief and loss. I do feel that this app is a bit advanced for 12 years olds. Otherwise it is an Awesome app that will be very helpful tool to help young folk cope with the loss of loved ones.
Developer Response ,
thank you so much Tawana. We really appreciate your feedback. We hope that the students that you are in touch with may benefit from using Apart of Me. If you have any more thoughts or questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
I think this app will help many families. Thank you for providing another platform/opportunity to help people open up about their grief. It is so important to feel absolutely what you need to feel while going through the grieving process, whether it’s positive emotions or negative ones. I like being able to hear other people’s stories and learning what might’ve helped them during their own grieving process. Thank you for making this game.
Beautiful... Just Beautiful
I love the concept I love the idea all the little elements come together and make one beautiful game that truly knows how to attack the topic of grief in a beautiful way.
The fire fly emotions was a marvelous idea and the fact that we can hear other peoples perception and perspective of all their experiences is truly amazing. I adore the little tasks I adore the graphics it’s an amazing concept you guys in an amazing job!
