Welcome to the REThink Project!

The REThink project aims at responding to the European urge of improving children and adolescents’ access to evidence-based mental health interventions. The goal of the project is to design, develop, and evaluate a therapeutic video game accessible online, meant to be used primarily as a standalone application to promote emotional resilience in children and adolescents.

The game will be based on the RETMAN character, having its own stories, belonging to tested packages of cognitive-behavioral therapy for promoting child and adolescent mental health (i.e., Rational Emotive Behavioral Education).

Based on the interlinked efforts of a multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals and engineers, we expect the end-result to be a cost-effective tool for mental health promotion in children and adolescents.

The project is funded by The Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI) through the Partnerships program. The project is coordinated by the Babes-Bolyai University in partnership with PixelData enterprise.

The team of the partneris responsible with the software implementation of the therapeutic game. The project implementation timeline is July 2014 - December 2016 .
