Accompaniment to develop a Serious Game prototype in health and offer the possibility of piloting it in a real environment.
Networking between providers, private sector companies, non-profit groups and the academic-scientific sector.
Training and mentoring on appropriate strategies for the design, implementation and evaluation of Serious Games in health for the problems detected.
PROMOTING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND HEALTHY EATING TO CHILDREN (6-14 YEARS OLD) THROUGH A FAMILY GAME
The goal is to determine whether a serious game solution on a mobile platform aimed at parents can improve diet and physical activity behaviours and reduce the prevalence of overweight and obesity in school-age children.
Childhood obesity is a major health problem in many countries. In Catalonia, only 31.7% of the population aged 3 to 14 years have an active leisure style, i.e. they exercise for at least one hour a day (sport, play, park, street). In addition, four out of ten children aged 6-12 (40.4%) are overweight (overweight or obese). Childhood obesity and obesity-related behaviours in childhood, such as low physical activity and unhealthy eating habits, tend to continue into adulthood, highlighting the need for early prevention.
ENHANCING EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING IN YOUNG ADULTS
The goal is to determine whether a serious game solution can increase the emotional regulation capacity and executive functioning of young adults. This ultimately translates into changes in their behaviour.
The pandemic impacted significantly on the mental health and emotional wellbeing of the population. Initially, it was the fear of infection, disease, confinement and the economic situation, and later, uncertainty about the future. All these factors have led to increased levels of stress, anxiety, depression and discomfort in people.
BUILDING SELF-ESTEEM IN TEENAGERS 12-18 YEARS OLD
The goal is to determine whether a serious game solution can support adolescents' emotion management.
A large proportion of mental health disorders first present in childhood. The increase in adolescent mental health cases highlights the need for innovative approaches to support and prevent these difficulties. Digital interventions that address risk factors and symptoms, such as understanding and managing emotions, present exciting opportunities to improve mental health support for adolescents on a larger scale.
