youandme – a game for good mental health

Miriam Kaufman, Division Head, Adolescent Medicine (left), and Kelly Warmington, Knowledge Translation and Exchange Specialist at the SickKids Learning Institute, were among those involved.

Knowledge translation (KT) has been put to new use at SickKids with the development of the digital game youandme.

The game was developed by SickKids Foundation with the help of an interdisciplinary team of experts from SickKids. It was launched May 1 at the start of the Foundation’s month-long Healthy & Happy campaign, aimed at raising awareness and educating about child and youth mental health. The campaign’s education initiatives also include a website, a special section in the Toronto Star May 2, mental health tip sheets, public events, an online chat with an expert, and social media outreach via Twitter and Facebook.
