Mind of My Own
Mind of my own is an app that collects the views, wishes and feelings of young people, directly from young people. Mind of my own has created the 'one app' for one to one work with young people. There is also an app called 'express' for children with additional needs. Mind of My Own send the information collected in your session on the app to the professionals working with that child in a PDF. One app doesn't have to be used in one to one sessions, the young people can access it on there own at any time. The young person can choose whether to send their views from the app, or maybe they just want to use it to process their thoughts alone.
