The Mental Health Foundation tells us that around one in ten of us growing up in the UK are affected by mental health problems of some kind. This is something that needs to change.

For every 10 Moodbeam One wearables purchased through the website we will set one aside for someone who needs one but doesn’t have access to one...

Moodbeam and Community Counselling

"10% of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically-diagnosable mental health problem, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate intervention at a sufficiently early age."

- The Children’s Society

Moodbeam’s creators had been talking to therapists since its creation back in 2016. One in particular successfully trialled the Moodbeam prototype as a tool to encourage a young person to open up when previous attempts to get her to talk had proven ineffective. 

Moodbeam’s technology, even in its infancy, had demonstrated that through self input the young person felt able to non-verbally communicate her low points. When the therapist then met with her and asked what was happening on the ‘blue’ days, it became apparent that the situation was even more difficult than first surmised. 

 Frances Morrison, Play and Creative Arts Therapist, describes the moment she met co-founder Christina: "I’d been introduced to Christina through a mutual friend. It was very early days, when Moodbeam was still very much a concept that needed testing." 

 “When its use was described to me it was like I’d just found the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle I’d been searching for. To then go on to test its effectiveness as a tool to encourage conversations and evidence mental health and find that it can so simply capture and visualise those moments of distress was, for me, a huge breakthrough.” 

 As a Play and Creative Arts Therapist I provide counselling for children and young people where sessions are child led. Adding Moodbeam to my resources provides another tool where clients have control over how and when they use it. It extends the therapy to outside of the session…a bit like having a therapist in your pocket! 

 As the Lead Counsellor for Children and Young People with Community Counselling based in Malton, Fran intends to continue to use Moodbeam as a support for her clients.
