A Behavioral Health Platform for Pediatric Patients
We love our BodiMojo app, yet we are so much more. We have created a platform that allows us to help you reach your pediatric patients or youth membership through the mobile devices kids use every day, all day. Through custom health and wellness messages, we help you reach out to your members in a fun and meaningful way to help them manage their stress, chronic condition, or lifestyle habits. (See our infographic.)
Why does this matter? Kids are our future – yet for the first time since experts started tracking Stress in America, teenagers are as stressed out as adults. We’re raising a stressed out and unhealthy generation, and this alarming trend must be stopped. Stress impacts teens’ decision-making; and for teens already experiencing a chronic health issue, stress influences their outlook and behavior, interfering with health recommendations and compliance.
As health professionals, we understand that unless we can help kids manage their emotional life and teach them to problem-solve, create solid connections and build confidence, any prevention program or behavioral health intervention will be ineffective.
If we want our kids to follow the guidance of doctors, counselors, parents or teachers, we need to find ways to get and keep their attention! Managing a health condition – and managing life – can be challenging for some kids. We want to engage kids and make wellness fun and interesting. We can make great positive strides by reminding them, in teen-friendly ways, how small healthy actions can have a big impact on their wellness.
The BodiMojo platform is an innovative, emotionally intelligent solution for health organizations and brands to engage with teens using the technology they use every day and shift their focus inward.
The innovative BodiMojo wellness mobile app is designed to appeal to your youth audience. We provide custom solutions for health, education and social mission clients. Instead of a “you should” approach, BodiMojo offers an “I can” motivational message that resonates with teens.
With encouragement at their fingertips, we help teens take a wholehearted approach to health.
BodiMojo is emotional intelligence on the go.SM
BodiMojo’s DNA is rooted in the scientific evidence for behavioral change and positive psychology. Our team of scientists, user experience designers and health experts ensures that our products and testing are based in rigorous science. Our Research and Development (R&D) funding comes from the National Institute of Health (NIH) Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant program.
Through pilot studies and an upcoming randomized controlled study with 200 teenagers, we continue to test, iterate, and learn what works and what doesn’t when it comes to health interventions for this demographic.
We collect engagement and health data through app usage. Data shared by teen users is compiled to create wellness report cards so that clients can measure the impact of their intervention messages in real time, and shape health initiatives for optimal results.
Kids get a virtual buddy. Currently developed for iPhone, the BodiMojo app provides a virtual buddy – a confidence coach – to teach, inspire and remind teens to tune-in to their feelings. Their personalized buddy encourages the teen to practice moments of mindfulness and teaches tiny skills to practice each day. These are delightful nudges, sparks of inspiration and momentary celebrations that keep teens engaged and focused on wellness.
Little steps lead to a big heart.
At its core, BodiMojo believes that when we interrupt the stream of choreographed moments and teach teenagers mindfulness, we make room for heartfulness. When teens learn to look inward instead of projecting outward, they reclaim their mojo; that blend of personal charm that comes from being comfortable in your own skin.
The heart of the app teaches wellness, mindfulness and self-compassion that teen users will need to successfully navigate life, manage stress and make positive choices. Our approach is rooted in the mind-body behavioral medicine and developmental psychology. We believe that to change the behavior of teens, we have to address their emotional life first.
The BodiMojo App allows teenagers to tap into their internal motivations to make the best decisions through:
- becoming self-aware
- keeping calm
- taking perspective
- eating well
- being kind
- making healthy choices
While the primary focus is inward (on the teen’s feelings and states of being), the app also encourages teens to invite trusted peers into their BodiMojo tribe. The app enables social celebrations through sharing a teen’s own reflections, aspirations and daily accomplishments. Teenagers who integrate head and heart develop internal assets, such as:
