Mental health is placing increasing pressure on global health organisations with modern lifestyles significantly contributing to worsening mental well-being. Mental health challenges do not only affect adults but also children with increasing social and academic pressure. Technologies for mental well-being possess many qualities that offer the potential for people who may otherwise not receive help due to fear of stigma or lack of resources to improve how they feel. In this work, we pursue the design of multiple tangible interfaces for children containing sensors with the aim of using artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically infer their mental well-being and custom buttons to enable the real-world data to be labelled. Tangible interfaces for mental well-being are ideal as they provide a non-intrusive means to infer and communicate mental wellbeing through play.
