Mental health support just uses a headset.
Remember Jewel, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter who mesmerized us with memorable songs like “Who Will Save Your Soul” and “You Were Meant For Me?” and providing much-needed mental health support to the VR community.
The multi-platinum music artist recently appeared on the news program CUOMO and chatted inner worldis the VR metaverse she co-founded, an evidence-based mental health tool for people struggling with a range of mental complications, from anxiety and depression to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). and peer-to-peer support.
The platform offers a variety of helpful resources and is monitored by a team of human operators and an artificial intelligence (AI) system to watch for keywords that may indicate self-harm.
“What I’ve been doing at the Foundation for the last 20 years is a peer-to-peer model, and it’s actually been much more successful than one-on-one.” Said jewelry. “I think psychotherapy is great, but it’s not for everyone. Meditation is very important and there are many good meditation apps, but what I’ve learned is that meditation puts people in a position to change.” It’s put down, but it means you need behavioral tools to change real habits.”
“I was dedicated to coming up with a truly scalable solution, and for me, VR was exactly where my focus was,” she added. “We have a lot of people who use this as a supplement to their therapeutic activities, and who do not have access to therapy or other traditional services. people are on board, and that’s what’s great about VR.”
Innerworld is available for free in VR meta quest, PCs, and iOS devices. For more information, see: inner world.
