For decades, mental illness has been a popular topic of discussion that still lingers for effective treatments [1]. While current therapy of mental disorders can achieve success, it is far from enough to prevent their occurrence and impacts on individuals [2]. Because of this, mental illness is an area of study that requires professionals and specialists to take a further step. Additionally, as the use of technology advances in the current society, young children and preteens gradually become victims of mental disorders as well: a community that often needs careful attention from adults and caregivers [3]. This paper introduces a method of treating mental disorders in young individuals that is not considered rare, but often overlooked, by many. This application encourages creativity and interests in its users, motivating them to actively engage on their strengths and use it to reflect their struggles.
