1. Assess the family’s emotional health with a range of simple, scientifically robust questionnaires. Compare your results against other families around the world.

3. Soon you’ll be able to connect with local, accredited professionals should you need a greater level of help and support.
Also, research shows that behavioral and mental health issues can affect any family. They can be triggered by any number of events, striking suddenly and, to the untutored eye, without warning. Such issues have far-reaching consequences, sometimes leading to poor decision-making, excessive risk taking and can have life-long consequences.
MyFampal Parent helps you pre-empt and prevent these issues before they take root.
They’ll monitor your family’s emotional wellbeing over time. The service may detect behavioral or mental health challenges, or sound a warning around the way your family communicates.
They also provide some much needed perspective. It could be that your family is experiencing an issue shared by most families. Alternatively, your result may not be in the ‘higher risk zone’, but compared to other families there is still work to do.
There are currently 14 age-specific questionnaires which can take anywhere between 1-30 minutes to complete. We have designed the service to space them out over time so you never feel overwhelmed.
You have the chance to repeat some questionnaires periodically to measure progress and alert you to any challenges you face.
MyFampal Parent will remind you when a questionnaire is due to be completed.
Measuring an event couldn’t be more simple. Just choose the ‘Children’ section within the app and click the emoticon under the relevant child which most closely resembles your child’s behavior, mood or emotion. In a couple of clicks you can record a mood. We use a simple format of five emoticons ranging from 1 (very negative) to 5 (very positive).
After the moment has passed you can go back into the app and add more information to provide context, lessons learned, etc.
