VR News: Thanks to Oxford VR they have been pioneering VR-enabled mental health therapy and testing the results. And those results are pretty amazing! In fact, VR therapy has shown to cut the phobia in patients by 70%! A Staff reporter for innovatorsmag.com finds out more: https://www.innovatorsmag.com/vr-and-mental-health/
My Thoughts: Using VR for recovery in mental health is not a new thing at all, in fact, it has been going on for years! What has changed is the legitimacy of those said results and the high level of positiveness surrounding them. For certain phobias and conditions, it is perfect, but VR should always be seen as a side therapy to real face to face therapy sessions, rather than an alternative, or “cheaper” option.
