Connection - help Foshan, Flori, and Benku and they will connect you to stories of loss and love in the cave from people who really know how it feels


“Since being involved in this project, I have been able to find some meaning from all of those dark times."
-- Jamie, 18. Apart of Me Guide

"It really does show you how ‘you are not alone’, and even the way we process our grief, despite the different circumstances, are so similar. All these people are using their journey, their story to help others to not feel isolated. And it really is rewarding. This app will change the lives of so many.”
-- Jody, 22. Apart of Me Guide

“Your app is spot on, truly novel, so creative, so relevant, diverse & inclusive too. I lost my Dad who was wonderful at 18 & my family of sisters have achieved & been hugely successful but have suffered in various ways through not being able to effectively grieve & comfort each other & our mother at the time. Finding this has really made my day. Your app will make a big impact.”
-- Mary, Player

-- Linda Magistris, Chief Executive/Founder, The Good Grief Trust

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.

Thank You

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.

I’m not going through loss, but I use this app for my autism and anxiety. I also wanted to see if it was any good since I know someday I will probably have to cope with loss. The app is amazing, and I love it.
