The mental well-being of individuals during adolescence is a crucial factor in the development into adulthood. Various digital applications have already been developed to support adolescents’ well-being and to prevent and manage adolescents’ mental health problems in daily life. Less information is available on how adolescents are working with these applications and how they see these tools as a part of daily life. In this paper we will introduce one example of adolescents using a digital support system. The support system was tailored to be used individually in the school environment of adolescents.
