For young people between 12-25, mental health can be a major issue. Enter the Virtual Reality (VR) Headset. The VR Headset can virtually transport young people into a safe and comfortable environment. Particularly when they are experiencing high levels of anxiety, this tool will support young people in finding inner calm. It will also double as a tool with which to connect with a therapist in a private, digital forum.
To trial their idea, this team will work with a group of year 7 students, and Ballarat Community Health, to setup a therapist-led workshop, where these young people can share their mental health experiences in a safe and comfortable environment.
