Through the Eyes of: Phychosis

‘Through The Eyes Of’ - Phychosis
improving understanding of Mental Health through Virtual Reality


Through the use of Virtual Reality (VR) technology why not improve your understanding of what a person with Mental Health disorder may be experiencing? The aim of the learning would be to improve empathy and also help build reflective discussions around the issue

Using Virtual Reality, we aim to create an immersive experience for learners in order to improve understanding of various health conditions. In a well-crafted VR environment, with a high level of engagement, sensations are heightened greatly. This hyper reality can be used to drastically reinforce the learning experience, leading to much better retention of knowledge. Come and immerse yourself in a virtual experience you will not forget
