Recommendations for Implementing Gamification for Mental Health and Wellbeing

Vanessa Wan Sze Cheng
2020 Frontiers in Psychology  
Definitions of the term "gamification" vary, sometimes widely, between and within academic fields and the effectiveness of gamification is yet to be empirically established.  ...  With reference to game studies and the medical (eHealth/mHealth) literature, this article interrogates gamification for mental health and wellbeing by examining core properties of the game form.  ...  As gamification is still an emerging area of inquiry, the majority of research is exploratory and solution-focused instead of evaluative.  ...
