The game consists of four different modes. The first one is the “Am I OK?” feature, in which teenagers practice identifying their feelings, and emotional state. Just by learning to name your emotional state research has proven you can improve your emotional well-being. The app asks them to name 4 emotions out of 12 (positive and negative) for four aspects of their lives: Family Life, Social Life, School and Everything Else. With this approach the K’BRO app can help kids identify which aspect of their life may be causing emotional problems. The second feature is the Deal With It mode. This mode creates a safe place where young teenagers can find advice for different difficulties and problems they encounter, or ask various life related questions that are then answered by the app’s anonymous online community called My Tribe. Speak Up is the feature where they can practice speaking up and advocating for themselves in manner not hurtful for anyone. Their My Tribe peers will help them by providing feedback. And the fourth feature is the “What’s Up?” mode. In this mode, each day, they’ll be asked three questions about what’s currently going on in their lives. And on the not so great days, the K’BRO app will remind them of all the good stuff the going on for them, to help them with a little emotional boost.
