Clinical Trial Summary

Two randomised controlled trials will be conducted to evaluate a virtual reality (VR) simulation designed to reduce stigma against depression. Qualitative interviews will also be carried out to evaluate the VR simulation.


Clinical Trial Description

The investigators examine the impact of a VR-assisted curriculum on stigma reduction towards individuals with depression. This is done through the development and evaluation of a VR-assisted curriculum that promotes stigma reduction towards depression among tertiary-aged students. Collection of data will provide insights about the effectiveness of VR's immersive quality in enhancing stigma reduction skills through measures of attitudes, beliefs and knowledge about depression. In the first study, VR is compared with traditional pamphlets in an information sharing booth about depression. In the second study, participants attend a 30-min session where they undergo an educational curriculum with either a VR or standard video as adjunctive tools. ;
