In Norway, mental disorders are a major health problem in children and adolescents, according to the Norwegian institute of public health. They estimate that 15 to 20% of children between 3 and 18 years have reduced function due to symptoms of mental disorders such as anxiety, depression and behavior disorders; Half of these(about 70,000 children) will have such severe symptoms that they meet the requirements for a psychiatric diagnosis that requires treatment. Our approach on this diploma is a cross disciplinary work between service and interaction design. Where we will explore how digital interfaces and meditation techniques can be used as an instrument in prevention and treatment of emotional disorders (such as stress, anxiety and depression); experienced by adolescents between ages 12 to 18 and in collaboration with professionals.
