Swedish helpline Bris launch child-counselling chatbot through heart breaking film

Swedish helpline Bris launches a child-counselling chat bot on Kik and Facebook with a heart breaking ad about a girl going on Christmas break all alone.

The film from Sweden’s children’s rights organization BRIS and creative agency Garbergs, illustrates a girl’s last day in school before Christmas break, how she sees other people’s joy and fellowship and feel left out. Throughout the ad she carries around a little robot. In the end of the film the robot comforts her and gives her company. The music in the film is from Norwegian artist Ane Brun.

The robot is a symbol for the new chat bot service Brisbot that deals with the same kinds of questions as a regular helpline. Brisbot is available directly in the mobile phone on messaging platforms – Kik and Facebook Messenger. It gives professional counseling, answers and advice for children directly in the chat.

One of the most common and difficult problems that kids face today is a sense of hopelessness or loneliness. Many children that contact BRIS during the holidays talk about how they feel that everyone else is having a cozy time with relatives and friends, but that they feel left out and don’t have anyone to talk to.
