Caring Artificial Intelligence
Our caring artificial intelligence allows us to connect with young people who aren't ready to talk about what they are experiencing. By offering students support and never forcing them to talk, we enable them to regain control over the situation.
Solutions for young people
Youth who experience or witness bullying are offered several different solutions. This helps them remain calm and feel supported until they are ready to report the incident.
Confidential and safe
Youths are guided through the process independently and confidentially. When they are ready, they can report the situation to a trusted adult at school.
Witnesses are often forgotten, but thanks to Optania, they can gain a better understanding of the role they play in a given situation. As observers, they will understand the importance of becoming active witnesses.
With solutions developed by a team of psychologists and school workers, our solution provides youths with access to an intervention framework without forcing them to talk about the situation they have experienced. Optania will be able to direct them to the person in their school who can best meet their needs.
Information for parents
Optania offers information sheets for parents whose children experience or witness bullying.
We offer a handbook with tips on how to use the Optania platform and ideas for establishing an anti-bullying network.
Beyond reporting, Optania teaches youth to assert themselves better, value healthy and happy relationships, and prevent new cases of bullying.
