Virtual Worlds Project Helps Service Members Combat Deloyment Issues

virtualworldThe National Center for Telehealth and Technology will launch a new virtual worlds project for service members who struggle with deployment or psychological healthcare issues related to deployment.

During a June 3 DotMilDocs interview on Pentagon Web Radio, Dr. Kevin M. Holloway, a T2 clinical psychologist and the project lead for the Virtual Worlds project, explained how the web-based project uses a 3-D computer-generated environment to help improve psychological services and care.

With the new project, service members will have access to tutorials, information and training, as well as get an opportunity to socialize with other service members or counselors, regardless of their location.

In the future, T2 hopes to launch other beneficial attributes to help learn more about psychological issues such as a virtual simulator where service members learn by doing.
