Is It Any Good?

The site is fairly new, so it's still adding content -- the items that are currently available, though, cover many mental health-related topics in an informative, approachable way. Wondermind's articles range from journal prompts for when you're feeling envious to a Q&A with a clinical psychologist and selections on topics like the underlying factors that can cause indecisiveness. Some items offer guidance, such as hacks to help manage anxiety. A handful of interviews address celebrities' struggles with trauma, self-esteem, and other issues. But famous people aren't really the focus -- including co-founder Selena Gomez, who appears in only a couple of places on the site.

Kids won't find a ton of interactive elements -- the site offers some exercises, such as a worksheet-type activity where you fill in portions of sentences with positive thoughts about body acceptance. Articles comprise most of the content, though, so kids will primarily spend their time on the site reading. Wondermind just launched in spring 2022, so they won't find an endless amount of items -- but the reading selections that are available are generally well-written and enlightening, with an age-appropriate tone. Phrases like "NBD" and "been there" are peppered throughout articles, and titles such as "How Can My Self-Esteem Survive the Real World?" and "Here's Why You Might Feel Lonely Even When You're Not Alone" that directly address the reader add a personal feel, which may help engage kids. The site's search features allow kids to sort items by feeling-related topics, such as anxious or angry -- a nice touch that can help them hone in on content that addresses their current mental state or interests. Overall, with a welcoming, warm atmosphere that skips judgment in favor of empathy and compassion, Wondermind should be able to serve as a solid outlet to help kids learn about -- and also address -- numerous feelings.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
