Stanford is hosting their 3rd annual conference called Innovations in Psychiatry and Behavioral Health: Virtual Reality and Behavior Change. This year the conference is focusing entirely on virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) technologies and behavioral change. They will be exploring the ways that virtual reality and augmented reality can help in treating and researching addictions, ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, psychosis, pain, depression, psychosomatic illness and more.
They will also be hosting a “shark-tank style” innovation lab with demonstrations, and scientific posters. Stakeholders include psychiatrists, psychologists, behavioral scientists, neuroscientists, engineers, developers, designers, computer scientists, business people, etc.
A quote from Stanford’s Brainstrom Innovation Lab: “Virtual and augmented reality technologies are transforming what is possible in mental healthcare. That’s why we at Stanford are hosting a competition for ideas in virtual and augmented reality that can re-imagine the way mental healthcare is delivered.”
