Understanding clinical depression using VR
What do the approximately 4.5 million people suffering from clinical depression in Germany feel? What do the approximately 10,000 people who take their own lives each year think? With the Virtual Reality experience “Impression Depression”, the Robert Enke Foundation wants to evoke understanding and educate those who not affected. At the Places _ VR Festival, the application can be experienced and the concept behind Impression Depression will be presented.
The application was implemented on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the death of the name-giver of the foundation in cooperation with relevant experts. The VR experience is just as important as an introduction and subsequent reflection on the experience. This is how real and virtual experiences work together.
