Virtual Ability enables people with a wide range of disabilities by providing a supporting environment for them to enter and thrive in online virtual worlds. In addition to hosting the annual Mental Health Symposium, a free professional conference open to the general public, the Virtual Ability community posts exhibits and displays related to mental health on its Healthinfo Island. The theme this year was “I can relate to that.”
Dr. Anderson speaks at The Sojourner Auditorium on Virtual Ability Island in Second Life about ways in which design and virtual technologies might support the mental health and well-being of clinical staff.
Dr. Anderson was also an invited guest on The Drax Files Radio Show to discuss the topic of ‘Mental Health in a Virtual World’. Click here to listen to the podcast.
