Hope and guidance for young people experiencing loss and trauma.
Apart of Me is a registered charity dedicated to supporting bereaved young people and their families. At the core of what we do is our multi-award-winning therapeutic mobile game, which was co-created by experts in child psychology and grieving young people. It translates bereavement-counselling techniques into a magical 3D world and is totally free to use.
Grief counselling is expensive and not appealing or available to a lot of young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. More young people are turning to social media to process their loss and trauma, but what they find isn’t necessarily fit for purpose.
That’s why we created Apart of Me - a unique experience that is available to young people whenever they need, talks their language, and has been designed specially for them in a format they can engage with.
Our aim is to be your trusted guide through loss and trauma, helping you to explore, understand, accept and articulate your experiences and the wide range of emotions connected to them. We empower you to work with ‘difficult’ feelings, and to discover your own strength and wisdom hidden in the darkest of places.
We are here to support you through the heartbreak and confusion of loss, and offer hope and comfort as you find ways to live fully despite your loss.

“This game is beautiful. It helped me a lot in my time of need. It has calmed my anxiety down tremendously. The rock pool is so useful, I go there when I wake up to start my day nice and when I go to sleep. The stories are my favorite part, I listen to one whenever I can. Thank you for this game, I love it so much.” - Rosabella
“I’ve never written a review for an app before, but I just had to for this lovely game. Not only does it look and sound great, but the concept is so heartwarming. As someone who has suffered the loss of their parents at a young age, I can really appreciate Apart of Me. It makes you feel as though there is someone there supporting you through your grief. Hats off to the creators, it’s such a special app!” - Kira
“This game has blown my mind. I never thought an app would help me through the grief of losing my partner nearly 5 years ago when I was pregnant. The calming techniques help me to relax and the little messages along the way really make me feel good. Fabulous app! I’m very socially awkward and have been waiting for counselling but this is really helping me to grieve. Thank you so much.” - Teif
