This innovative service is a partnership between Hertfordshire Mind Network and BfB Labs. We are working together to provide access to early help for 5-18 year olds who are experiencing mild to moderate mental health needs.
Hertfordshire Mind Network
If you are experiencing mental ill health, we are here to help you deal with it.
We provide you with opportunities to improve your health and wellbeing, so you can live with or recover from your mental ill health and build towards the life you want to live.
We do this by offering a wide range of services with a strong emphasis on self-help, prevention and personal development.
Our services are available to all residents in Hertfordshire over the age of 18 and we also offer specially-dedicated services for those aged between 5 and 18.
Every year, we provide support to around 2,500 children and young people across the county.
We are based in seven Wellbeing Centres and other venues across all ten districts of Hertfordshire so, wherever you are in the county, we’re close by.
BFB Labs is an impact-led enterprise on a mission to ensure children and young people are able to access the support and build the skills and resilience they need to improve and sustain good mental health.
We provide age-appropriate, evidence-based, digital therapeutic interventions that offer effective mental health support early on, to children and young people in a way that is fun and non-stigmatising. At the heart of BFB Labs is a person-centred approach, co-creating with children, parents/carers, school staff and clinicians – which led us to fuse proven therapies with immersing and responsible gaming. We place therapeutic best practice into children and young people’s hands in a way that is safe, effective, engaging and accessible anytime anywhere.
Lumi Nova: Tales of Courage is BFB Labs’ award-winning offer, regulated by the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). It is a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT-based) therapeutic mobile game designed for 7-12 year olds that facilitates exposure therapy for children, and empowers learning to tackle anxieties and build resilience.
