FINE, which stands for Feeling Insecure, Neurotic and Emotional, is an AI-powered digital friend that can read and react empathetically to children’s emotions. The prototype tool offers support, monitors the family’s mood over time and fosters discussion to help improve mental health. Developed by Method in close collaboration with Fitzrovia Youth in Action, NHS Tavistock Trust and MIND, the project presents an innovative and potentially highly effective approach to avoiding depression.
