Our data indicates that young people are searching for supports that meet their needs and are different from traditionally available services. When we offered different types of services to online users, more people used eQuoo than any other mental health support. Offering a game based mental health support fills a much needed gap.
I like the design of the game. I can see how individuals will benefit and learn how to apply new skills. Being given the opportunity to engage with the story is nice touch. I would definitely recommend it.
The EQuoo app is an innovative way to learn positive coping skills and strategies for better psychological health. The app's graphics are clear and engaging. The interactive learning format using a virtual couple and more detailed stories with other virtual characters was very effective. The concepts and skills were fun to learn and practice. Great app!
I played eQuoo, curious about what I might learn as a former psychology professor and current relationship-science author. This program showed me my biases and how to balance them with reality, assessed my personality in line with other tests I’d taken, and presented games, interactive stories, and numerous examples to help me enhance my emotional intelligence. I think people who use eQuoo will become more adept in all their relationships, more knowledgeable about themselves, and ultimately, more resilient. Well done!
As a therapist, having played EQuoo I was surprised with how much I learned. It made me stop, reflect & consider my answers. I felt pleased & satisfied when my choices were confirmed correct. It described my personality as I believed it to be, which is a positive open-minded person.
Congratulations to Silja Litvin and her team at PsycApps on having developed the ground-breaking mobile therapy app, eQuoo. They’ve succeeded in making the game educational yet compelling through a mix of story-telling, gamification and animation. The app leads users painlessly through evidence-based information drawn from positive psychology, cognitive-behavior therapy, couples therapy, brain research, and other approaches that build resilience, optimism, and hope. Having spent time “playing” the game myself, I think it spearheads a revolution in mental health apps, that will incorporate A.I. and machine learning.
This is persuasive technology used for good. It’s used to engage people with an application that will help them with their mental health issues. eQuoo is very interactive. I love the avatar, Dr Joy, and how it engages you from the very beginning. You’re playing and it’s not beating you over the head with learning. I have a cohort of clients in mind that could use this to bridge appointments to work to keep up with concepts we’re working on.
eQuoo is really an impressive undertaking. Silja Litvin is carving out some brand-new territory. This is ground-breaking work.
EQuoo is an interesting and cost-effective way to learn more about both yourself and psychology so that you can increase your level of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence can be just as important as IQ in our workplace and life success. In a fun way and through games, the app provides feedback on your “Big Five” personality traits, psychological traits that have been tested and validated. If you are interested in self-improvement, psychology, and increasing your emotional intelligence, I recommend the EQuoo App as a helpful purchase.
I love that eQuoo is relaxing and fun to use. The interactive 'choose your own story' aspect makes it engaging and very accessible. Plus, you learn something about yourself along the way - a great addition to every Superheroes' utility belt!
Wow! A truly groundbreaking app that helps build reliance and psychological skills.
I am so excited to be part of this amazing vision. An app with the power of self management, emotional fitness and education is an amazing addition to the world of self help. Combined with a team of evidence based psychology professionals and user friendly game developers, my search for an accessible digital medium partnership is over.
In my job I have a lot of stress and pressure. using eQuoo helps me focus and ground myself while having a bit of fun. I love that eQuoo is able to help people in a fun way, taking the sting of stigma away.
There are countless benefits to being physically fit. Our bodies are the vehicles we use to move through the world, and, of course, it makes a lot of sense to have our 'vehicles' in the best shape possible. However, as well as physical fitness, emotional fitness is just as crucial to our life satisfaction, if not more so.
Our mental wellness depends in large part on the quality of our relationships, and eQuoo is a great resource for improving relationship skills! The examples are effective and engaging and make the skills easier to apply in real life. Excellent resource!
eQuoo is FUN. It is also very engaging. I have been using the App for a while and find that it highlights skills that are very helpful in human interactions and help me to manage my mental wellbeing. I have learned things about myself which are also very useful. It is definitely worth giving it a go, wherever you are on the mental health continuum.
EQuoo is an awesome way to have fun and discover new tools. By integrating the best of what we know about helping people into an interactive app, taking care of your mental health and building skills become fun and accessible for everyone.
The digitalization and mobilization of Men's mental health is one of the most important tasks we have as a society. eQuoo is doing an excellent job to help with this. And the game is fun and interesting to play as well.
eQuoo takes on the tricky task of making mental health something you want to learn about, as opposed to something you have to! By blending the power of story-telling in games and the latest psychological insights, eQuoo defeats stigma with an overwhelming sense of fun. With a smile as its sword, I would certainly watch out for this fairytale hero!
I love eQuoo! This is THE killer app you need to take your relationship skills to the next level. I recommend this app specifically for any human that finds themselves working with, talking with, living with, or dating other human beings. That would be you I assume.
It's been fun trying out eQuoo. This online game really is one of a kind and takes you through different levels where you learn new emotional and psychological skills that you unwittingly will use in every day real-life scenarios. Enjoy trying it for yourselves!
I have been playing eQuoo on & off this last week - I've found it super useful actually. I can see this being so brilliant for educational purposes too - teaching relationships & mental health. I love your work, eQuoo! Keep on doing what you're doing xo

I love it!!! I am now past level four! I love how it is so interactive with the troll game, the wizard, mars and more! I also love how we get feedback on our tendencies and emotional fitness!! Awesome job!
Right on trend eQuoo focus on prevention, on resiliance, on reaching people before their mental health has deteriorated is a game-changer in the world of mental health apps.
We love finding new products and apps that help people - and Equoo is one of the strongest in the market, created by verified and trained practitioners it is properly science backed and focused on helping people improve their resilience to be able to cope.
eQuoo has been fun to play. Through each stage a new environment allows me to make choices I ordinarily wouldn’t think about. It has encouraged positive emotional development, exposing me to things I never knew about myself before!
An engaging educational tool which kindled interest in learning more about human behaviour. I look forward to seeing the app develop and discovering more about people but also about myself.
