“DiaryZapp for Schools is a daily journaling app, designed to help children develop positive emotional wellbeing habits.”
Schools have a vital role to play in supporting children’s emotional wellbeing and mental health, teaching them the skills they need to recognise and deal with their emotions.
“We believe that many mental health problems are preventable, but for prevention to work for children, changes need to take place in our schools, from primary level upwards.”
“If we are not tackling mental health problems early, then we risk failing the next generation right at the start of their lives.”
Dr Antonis Kousoulis, Associate Director at the Mental Health Foundation
We know how important the wellbeing of children and young people is to teachers and school staff but they are under pressure and can’t always be expected to be mental health experts. Schools are working hard to address children’s mental health and support their emotional wellbeing but it can be a challenge. They need practical, easy-to-access support that really works for the young children they teach, which is why we have developed DiaryZapp for Schools.
Using DiaryZapp for Schools in your classroom can help children to develop positive emotional wellbeing habits by encouraging them to make sense of what is going on around them.
- Encouraging children to express their emotions
- Providing positive daily messages which boost wellbeing
- Helping children establish healthy routines by rewarding consistency
DiaryZapp for Schools provides a creative safe space for children, where there are no wrong answers, allowing them to reflect on their day and process their emotions.
Our unique Zappicon characters act as a child’s personal guide through the app encouraging them with their journaling through conversation starters and by asking questions to help them reflect on their day.
The Zappicons are designed to be relatable, diverse and can be customised.
In addition DiaryZapp for Schools incorporates functionality that enables:
- Children to login from anywhere – home, school or away on different devices by downloading the free DiaryZapp for Schools app on their home device
- Connects Teachers and Parents so families can get involved
- Automated teacher alerts based on key word trigger notifications
- Speech to text functionality to help reluctant writers
