A Virtual Reality Experience
Here's just a small sample of the early stages of the Virtual Reality experience. As we continue to develop we will update here. Virtual reality experience release date is planned for winter 2019
The Child’s Bedroom
Before hope was lost, before shame.
The Teenager’s Bedroom
Loss of hope, shame begins.
Depression room (Coming Soon)
Full of shame, hope feels lost.
The Medical Room
From no hope to hope, the fear and struggle of asking for help.
The Grocery Store
The search for hope and for self in a world that tells you that you are not ok.
The bathroom (Coming Soon)
Letting go of shame, the fight for recovery.
The Art Studio (Coming Soon)
Hope, healing and connection.
The Community Room (Coming Soon)
A social project: shared stories and art from real people.
THE VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE DOES NOT STAND ALONE.
We aim to remove the shame and silence that surrounds eating disorders to promote healing, recovery and prevention.
The Eating Disorder Project will go out into the world through a variety of avenues such as:
A personal book that through transparency and honesty reveals the journey of a girl, before, during, and after an eating disorder
The virtual reality experience which will be free to the public once completed
Resources to assist those in need to reach out and find community and support systems
Opportunities for the public to contribute their own stories into the virtual reality experience
Opportunities for those who want to be a part of this project to contribute and assist in further developing the virtual reality experience
THE EATING DISORDER PROJECT MAY BE A TOOL TO:
Help those suffering silently to see that they are not alone, that there is hope, healing and help.
Support personal recovery and help someone else in theirs.
Promote the power that shared experiences have in the therapeutic process and in the prevention of eating disorders.
Help clinicians connect with sufferers to assist opening up dialogue and assist in engagement with their clients.
Educate about the complexities of eating disorders, increasing the understanding that causes and recovery are different for each person.
Educate on the diverse lengths of time recovery may take, and to understand there is often not one “Ah-ha” moment.
Provide a place of purpose for the journey of those affected by eating disorders.
Remove the shame and silence that surrounds eating disorders to promote healing, recovery and prevention.
