The AR and VR technology is augmenting the understanding of various mental health problems  

FREMONT, CA: The belief that in ordinary circumstances, horrible things will happen is a psychological trauma that feeds on the fear of delusive minds of sensitive individuals has presently become a subject of vital interest. The illness exacerbates social stress that triggers the vulnerability of mental balance, and the patients are left with invisible symptoms, which further hinder the mental health equilibrium. Furthermore, resulting separation and introspection may exacerbate other diseases in a vicious cycle, including those which cause the rejection of regular functionalities.

However, recent times have seen a resurgence of interest and multiply in the notoriety of augmented reality, with the goal of establishing a fictional world that bends virtual and practical. When AR technology is integrated within an individual cognitive and mental health system, then a manner of information-based treatment and patient-centered practice is fuse within a single process-based portfolio. Ultimately, orienting the domain in the direction of digital innovation to find suitable therapeutic solutions, the augmented reality plays a prime role for clinical psychosis treatment.

The virtual reality capacity for studies, evaluation, and therapy in psychological health is that it allows investigators and healthcare professionals to take real-time observations in a laboratory setting. Furthermore, the premise behind a simulated-reality is to assist nurses in learning about the patient's mental state in a safe environment. While alleviating social anxiety by placing them in simulations of circumstances, the researchers are afraid of materializing their worst fear.

In the conventional protocol, the evaluation of therapeutically appropriate events contains various neurocognitive procedures like emotional stimuli and behavioral activation with standardized surveys, such as semi-structured symptom surveys, computer assignments, viewing videos or pictures or playing a part in a scenario. Even though these approaches have been empirically validated for their reliability and effectiveness, they lack ecological effectiveness and do not depict the essence of actual life situations. Virtual reality's revolutionary capacity is that it enables real-time monitoring of behavioral, emotional, mental, and psychological reactions to a multitude of "real-life" scenarios while allowing extensive laboratory supervision.

A way forward with virtual reality (VR) technology

An extensive number of studies are administered to determine the security of using virtual reality with individuals suffering from psychosis and to clarify the conceptual frameworks underlining the emergence and replenishment of psychotic symptoms. Presently, clinical psychological research institutes are joining hand with healthcare clinics and colleges to perform decisive experiments in order to perfect their synthetically enabled computerized systems.

The theory behind the extensive trials is based on active-learning therapies. Patients are trained through actual-world circumstances with which they have problems, so they learn to nullify their false belief, and act accordingly. Furthermore, in several studies, the nurses discover that patient's fears are unfounded, reducing the anxieties for the future when they meet the triggering circumstances.

For more than two decades, VR has been used in psychological health, mainly for anxiety disturbances, including inter-traumatic stress disorder, either as immersion treatment or mental training. The potential of virtual reality head-mounted systems to displays situate the user in an alternative reality, have superimposed the pictures on the true universe so that both are coexisting simultaneously and further improve the efficiency of therapeutic processes.
