Jot the friendly robot is a new character that was introduced at the start of this year by Suffolk County Council’s Children and Young People’s Engagement Hub Team and JG Mind Doodles, in partnership with Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care Board (SNEE ICB), to help families and primary school teachers to start a conversation about emotional wellbeing with their children and young people.
A series of animated videos of Jot the robot has been created which sees him given tips to children about things they can do to feel better when they are feeling anxious or worried.
Each month a new animation of Jot is being released for children to enjoy watching his wellbeing journey with his robot friends. The latest animation (released this week) sees Jot helping to cheer up a friend with music. Watch on Yotube.

Jot the robot is helping to support children with asthma:
Jot the friendly robot has teamed up with HealthWatch Suffolk to produce new asthma posters to help children know more about asthma – what can make asthma worse, and how they can manage their condition using blue and brown inhalers. The posters follow Jot and his robot friends taking part in a ‘Big Race’ and a fun ‘snow day’. Download the Jot asthma posters.
Don’t miss the Healthwatch survey for improving asthma support:
Healthwatch Suffolk, in partnership with Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care Board (SNEE ICB) are looking for families to share their experiences and ideas for how NHS support services for children and young people with asthma can be improved.
The survey closes on 15 September.
