My name is Robin Cox I am organizing a virtual reality system to be put in Sacmha. It will be state of the art computer with a Oculus rift head set and H.O.T.A.S. (Hands On Throttle And Stick). I will provide the software and it will be free to try. We would like to raise money through S.D.S donations. We are aiming at Gaming and virtual reality therapy. V.R.I.T. is Virtual reality immersion therapy which is a method of psychotherapy that uses virtual reality technology to treat patients with anxiety disorders and life phobias. we want to have had a virtual computer set up on forest close and in the Sacmha Centre because we think it will benefit the community
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
I myself have used computer software immersion for over twenty years it has helped me to deal with money transactions travel and crowed places. the game that I will focus on is Elite Dangerous Horizons. In this game you lean to control your income and learn to spend on thing you need. you will learn strength of character and travelling to distant stars make it easy to for example take a bus journey. landing on planets will help you prepare for the big meeting and driving on planets will help you walk through every day crowds. This would differ with each individual. We have put a petition in sacmha and the limbric centre and revived several names.
Steps to get it done:
The project will be based in a existing community mental health setting. We have a large number of service users involved in Sheffield Afro Caribbean Mental Health Association and Sheffield Outreach Team. We will publicise the club through posters , email shots and word of mouth, targeting Mental health service users with an interest in using computers and gaming.
