STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – These days, it’s hard to imagine sending or receiving texts without using emojis. There’s practically one for everything. Now, one organization is taking these clever little icons to a more serious level with “Abused Emojis.”

The Swedish organization BRIS – which runs a national helpline for children and teenagers – came up with the concept. The purpose? To help kids talk about situations where they’ve been hurt, or wronged, without necessarily having to put it into words.

The Abused Emojis even touch on self-abuse. Yeah, these icons aren’t for fun and games. However, BRIS believes “a complex reality demands a complex set of symbols.” And it’s really hard to deny that.

Anyone who’s interesting using “Abused Emojis” can download them from the App Store for free. A pretty small price to pay, if at the end of the day, a child’s life is saved.
