This mobile game was designed by child psychology experts and bereaved young people to help others deal with grief and cope with death. Based in London, Bounce Works is currently crowdfunding Apart of Me on Indiegogo. The therapeutic tool is supposed to be a "safe virtual space" and non-profit resource for grieving families. The smartphone game empowers them to talk about death, help with feelings of isolation and develop emotional resilience.

Apart of Me uses gaming technology to reach young people going through an extremely difficult time and deal with grief in a healthy manner. Video games have been used increasingly lately to help people with a variety of health-related issues, from aiding Alzheimer's research to fighting rock climbing phobias.
