Hosted by certified healthcare professionals, you can feel safe sharing your experiences, challenges, and fears. Our support groups are more than just secure video calls. They allow you to be in the company of others, all while remaining completely anonymous. Interact with groups of up to 10 people, working together to help each other cope. Each person is joining from their home, interacting through virtual reality, just like you.
Virtual reality brings people together by immersing them into the same digital environment. This mutual experience creates intimate interactions that are not possible through simple video or phone calls. Moreover, sitting right there with you is a trained medical professional, guiding you and your group through safe, positive conversation.
Virtual reality is powerful for support groups. Your virtual avatar allows you to open up, and overcome your natural hesitation, making sharing your challenges that much easier.
Picture this: you are sitting in your own living room and you put on a VR headset, transforming your surroundings completely. Next to you there are nine other people, real people, just like you, who are sitting in their own living room. You can see them, talk to them, and interact with them, all in a completely anonymous, yet intimate setting.
And the rest? The rest is exactly like any other support group. You will communicate with your group members and be guided by a professional that is present in the virtual setting with you.
Virtual reality is providing a gateway to healing for those who need it most. We are able to offer a sense of community to people confined to their homes and unable to participate in traditional support groups.
The ability for patients and moderators to connect with each other through VR is powered by Foretell Reality.
