DiaryZapp for Schools is a daily journaling app, designed to help children develop positive mental health and emotional wellbeing habits.
Research carried out by Oxford University confirmed children aged 4-10 years old, experienced increased emotional difficulties, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
Tom Madders, Campaigns Director at YoungMinds, said, ‘Research suggests that many younger children have found it increasingly hard to cope as the lockdown period has gone on, due to loneliness, fears about the virus, loss of the routines and support that comes with school.
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.
