Kids Help Phone and mindyourmind partner to create anti-bullying game,
For Immediate Release:
*Media release prepared by youth participants*
Over a six-week period, eight mindyourmind youth participants, two nursing students, along with Kids Help Phone and mindyourmind, co-produced a web-based game to address the problem of bullying. The process of creating the game was fun, conversation-driven, and interactive. We discussed the look and feel of the game and reviewed content for accuracy and relevancy. We all shared our ideas and opinions so that a youth perspective was considered when creating the game. We also created a special art mural to represent our creative process.
Quotes from some of the participants that created the game:
"I wanted to be a part of this project so I could help give today's youth the right amount of inspiration to do the smartest thing when they, or someone else is going through tough situations." – Jason, 13
"Usually when someone goes through a tough situation, it seems next to impossible to reach out to others. That's why I wanted to be a part of this group, so that the audience can use this game as a helpful resource for them to reach out." – Amanda, 16
"I hope this game will give kids and teens information on how to deal with bullying and gangs in a fun, interactive way. That was my main goal for joining this project." – Ivy, 13
