Empowering adolescents to manage emotional and mental health issues



One in ten UK children suffer with a mental health issue. Alarmingly as many as 70% of these don’t receive the proper help they need. That’s why the Anna Freud Centre wanted to develop an app that enabled these sufferers to better manage and cope with their condition.

Our solution?

PowerUp – an iOS and Android app that allows adolescents to record a diary, log questions, make decisions and assign items for discussion in their next clinical session.

Inspired by the likes of Spotify, the branding and interfaces of PowerUp were kept fresh and simple to appeal to 11-19-year-olds, without drawing too much attention to the user’s content.
