To add a child or adult to your family, open the app MYiNNERME and
- tap ‘My Family’
- tap “Add your family member”
- write “name” and tap “next”

You can invite up to four other family members to your family account. This allows your family members to follow the programmes in parallel on your individual devices.
You can turn on “My Messages” inside the app. By activating this feature, you can get a reminder every day at a specific time of your choice. You can disable the feature any time.
We recommend that you activate “My Messages” as you get the most out of MYiNNERME when you use it continuously.
MYiNNERME is a psychology app for children, young people and their adults. The purpose of the app is not to offer personal treatment or therapy, but to offer a place where you can find psychological knowledge and learn to understand how your child feels. And where you can find advice on how you and your child can solve the problems together. MYiNNERME is a tool that can be used on its own, and the app can provide support when the need arises.
Invite up to five family members to your subscription.
Psychological issues can be prevented by early guidance. In this way, MYiNNERME can act as a preventive tool that guides children and young people on how to relate to their inner selves. As a user of the app, you and your child get help to understand what your child thinks, feels and does — and you’ll learn that there is a correlation between thought, feeling, and action. This knowledge will equip your child to deal with the challenges he or she will face through life.
The app can also serve as a supplement to current treatment or as an offer to you who are waiting for psychological or other professional treatment for your child. The insights provided by the app can be used as part of other treatment.
The goal of the app is to create a nice and safe place where your child can learn about their problems, learn to understand themselves and others and how to deal with their problems.
In the app, you and your child are presented with research-based psychological knowledge about the precise problem your child needs help with. And step by step your child is presented with small exercises that can help them thrive and progress in a healthy way.
The app is designed primarily for 8-16-year olds and their parents, so adults can support the development that the programmes initiate. The app therefore has two tracks – one for the child and one for the parents – who in combination should help the family in a healthy direction of development.
If your child is younger than 10 years, you should help the child answer the diary exercises and be there for the child through the sessions.
In the app you will find a number of programmes with different themes, such as anger, bullying, shyness, Corona worries or grief. Each programme consists of daily listening exercises that conclude with a diary exercise.
You and your child will go through exactly the same subjects, but you will approach the content from different angles. Your role as an adult is to support the child along the way, but you also need to learn about your feelings and how they can affect your child.
We recommend that you complete a maximum of one session a day. It is important that your child takes plenty of time to get through the programme and that you follow the child’s pace. If you want, you can do the same exercise for several days in a row so you can get really good at it. And when the child feels ready to move on, you can continue with the next session.
The app’s diary is a place where you can write down all your thoughts during the programme. It’s completely private and yours personally. You’re the only one who has access to it, and the other members of your family cannot see what you’re writing. Neither can we, of course.
Just as you have a private diary, your child also has one, which you don’t have access to. The diary can be accessed at any time — both while you’re doing a programme and when you’re not. It contains many different tools to express yourself — with a choice of background colors, emojis, pictures from your phone – as well as good, old style letters in different colors. Most importantly, the diary is yours only, completely private and personal. We know how important it is that your and your child’s diaries are only available to you. That’s why we put a code on the app. It contains yours and your child’s innermost thoughts and feelings and we must take good care of those.
The app consists of three elements that are each beneficial in their own way:
First of all, the app consists of psychoeducation, which is the teaching of psychological phenomena such as anger, bullying or grief. That is, information on what it is, how it is and why it is so.
Psychoeducation increases understanding of the problem, and many become aware that there are other people with the same problem. That in itself can have a beneficial effect, as your child will no longer feel so alone and wrong. Psychoeducation is a common and basic tool in psychological treatment. Teaching can be preventive and reduce the risk of relapse.
The second element is cognitive behavioural therapeutic exercises. Cognitive behavioural therapy is one of the most commonly used psychological methods to treat a wide range of mental health problems around the world. The reason for this is that it is effective. Through the exercises, your child acquires insight into their problems and is guided to develop new strategies to meet the challenges.
The last element is the diary. Many studies indicate that writing a diary can improve one’s mental health. Diary entries can therefore be an effective therapeutic tool, which is why it is a key feature in the app. The reasons for the beneficial effect are that by writing a diary, your child gets to work with their feelings and thoughts. The child comes into contact with their inner world and puts words to it. It can improve both your child’s self-awareness and ability to communicate their inner life in words. In fact, diary writing can even relieve physical symptoms and stress, and can strengthen a sense of happiness and joy.
