Interactive Game-Based System for Psychological Health Education
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
A significant number of Warriors are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with Psychological Health (PH) problems that put Warriors at risk for substance abuse, marital and family problems, and even suicide. We propose to develop a prototype interactive simulation utilizing our cutting-edge technology that will reduce Warriors' perceptions of stigma while also teaching them how to recognize PH problems and utilize existing military and civilian resources. The simulation will supplement current training and treatment efforts by giving Warriors the opportunity to practice conversing with peers about psychological health. SIMmersion's simulation technology will immerse Users in a realistic interpersonal exchange while also providing a consistent approach that can be used in multiple training settings.
