Frequently Asked Questions
Does eQuoo work?
Yes. eQuoo was tested in a clinical trial and was proven to significantly raise resilience, interpersonal relationship skills and personal growth, while lowering anxiety. An ongoing trial with UCL is testing the effects eQuoo has on depression.
Will my apprentice want to use eQuoo?
92% of our young adults in the workforce take up using eQuoo. The game was specifically made with the needs and consumer habits of young adults aged 16 – 35 in mind, 70% of whom are casual gamers. Conventional digital mental health solutions often don’t work because they’re dropped after 2 minutes – believe us, we learned the hard way. We made mental health fun, yet effective.
Do I have to do anything?
No. After you give your apprentice or staff member access to the game, you’re done – we do all the work. We have regularly scheduled reminders, notifications and emails that accompany the game. Now you just have to watch your apprentice grow.
Won’t a game distract from work?
Sometimes we all need a break, and an apprentice may take a breather and use eQuoo, but the sessions are no longer than 15 – 20 minutes a week. Worst case is that you lose a few minutes of the day. But it’s better than them being on Snapchat or TikTok – they’ll be actively working on their mental wellbeing which gives them the tools to be better employees.
What is Resilience, and why is it important?
Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adverse situations like family stress, job stress, heartache and many more things that apprentices and employees struggle with on a daily basis. Being resilient means they have the psychological toolset to react in a mentally healthy way – it’s doesn’t mean they won’t suffer, but it makes it highly unlikely that they will get sick. Resilience is the biggest factor in the prevention of developing a mental illness.
And you can teach Resilience in a game?
Yes; playful learning is actually the oldest way to learn, and by far the most efficient – something learned playfully is embedded in memory forever. Thankfully, resilience can be learned quite easily, and these skills are taught as a tutorial and then practiced in the adventure part of the game.
How do I share eQuoo with my apprentices?
We will be sending you a link that gives you access to the licences you bought. You can distribute this link via text message or email. Upon request, we can also send you the link as a QR code to print. We also have a multitude of aditional options like posters, flyers and bike saddle covers – ask us for more info.

Advance Personal Growth

Lower Anxiety & Depression
Depression is alongside anxiety as the world’s most prevalent mental illness. Symptoms of depression, such as lack of drive, motivation, energy and the sense of emptiness make depression a real threat to any workplace that relies on the performance and engagement of their employees’ talent. Anxiety is accompanied by symptoms like the inability to focus, irritability and focus on the experience of fear – all which have a huge negative effect on productivity and job satisfaction.
