VR Mental Health

In this project, we are using VR 360 for an immersive interactive video storytelling method of health promotion. Talking about one’s feelings is helpful. However, due to stigma, many people with depression keep the suffering to themselves. In this VR environment, we used 360-degree videos to reproduce a counseling session in virtual reality that provides users an opportunity to vent out, without the fear of stigma or discrimination.
