K’Bro is an adventure-style game that provides five tools for documenting and coping with stressors. The app has a playful, colorful interface, and provides users with five buttons to navigate throughout the app. “Index”, “Am I Ok?'”, “Deal With it”, “Speak Up”, and “What’s Up”. The “Am I Ok?” page prompts the user with a series of questions about one of several stressors (e.g. “Hey, bro, what’s up with family?”, “Hey, bro, what’s up with other stuff?”), and and a selection of emotions to choose from. Once the user finishes their “Am I Ok?” entry, an adventure-style game begins; users navigate a fox through an obstacle course. The “Deal With It” feature prompts users to finish the question “How do I deal with _________”. When users type a response, the app recommends strategies for dealing with the users entry. The “Speak Up” function is a journal that prompts users to write what they “Wish they could say” to someone in their life. The “What’s Up” section includes a journal featuring positive writing prompts (“I’m grateful for…”, “I’m proud of”, etc). The social feature of the app allows users to connect anonymously with other people of the same age group (13+). The app also has a “learning” feature, and uses anonymized information about the users wellbeing over the course of the user’s interaction with the app to “suggest coping skills” if it assesses that the user may be feeling especially down or anxious.
