Should the following Tier 4: up to $60,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Community category be approved?


Mental Health is a growing priority in society, with issues such as anxiety, depression, substance disorders, and sleep disorders rising exponentially every year. We believe that metaverse-based technologies can disrupt a multitude of different industries, including healthcare.

Metaverse Architects and leading mental-health service providers Mind-Easy, shall launch the first-ever mental-health support system in the Metaverse, with the help of Metaverse Group and Tokens.com.

We aim to pioneer what is possible in DCL, by developing a very first use case in the disruption of traditional healthcare services, by offering free tools, information, and general support to the DCL community in the form of Mental Health provisions and services.

Our vision is to create an inclusive mental health clinic in the metaverse that will give DCL users access to the tools, videos, and resources to take charge of their mental health. This material will cover a range of mental health issues, and shall be accessible to anyone in Decentraland.

This will be built on land owned by Metaverse Group, and shall include the creation of an immersive, 3D experience, aimed at providing free, accessibile information on differnet Mental Health provisions.

Moreover, this project will aim to empower users to take charge of their mental health, and we shall prioiritise the formation and developlment of a community which aims to support and nurture the mental health of fellow DCL community members. Mind-Easy shall also work to provide free professional support systems to DCL Members, including free expert calls for DCL Members in the form of 20-minute expert sessions, which shall be given to the first 100 patients on the property looking for additional help and expertise beyond the free, immersive experience.

For extra inclusivity, the initial project will be designed and built to communicate mental health provisions in three key international languages, being English, Spanish and Portuguese.


In order to integrate mental health support into the DCL community, the mental health clinic will highlight features such as; virtual therapy, peer support, gamified content, and immersive, 3D educational resources.

The clinic will also include therapy spaces, sensory immersion experiences, and consciousness exploration spaces, along with peer support hubs and collaborative exercise spaces to foster a positive environment for mental health and wellbeing.

Our primary goal is to leverage the possibilities and potential of the Metaverse to bridge the gaps in the existing mental health spaces. The clinic will be the first step in the creation of an ecosystem for decentralized and equal distribution access to culturally validated mental health resources for all users.

Here, users will be able to engage in expanded experiences such as virtual therapy, peer support, gamified content and educational resources that will contribute to the adoption and expectancy of cultural sensitivity as the minimum standard of mental health care.
The clinic will include therapy spaces, sensory immersion experiences and consciousness exploration spaces, along with peer support hubs and collaborative exercise spaces to foster a destigmatized environment for mental health and wellbeing.

Our strategic collaborations with Metaverse Architects, as well as the enormous network of researchers, psychologists, and therapists specialized in the unique needs of users allows us to create content and design spaces with every need of the user at the forefront of our development process.

We are currently in the early design phase of hashing out the aesthetics of these spaces to make them feel as engaging and calming as possible. Additionally, the clinic will integrate an already existing and previously approved grant project DCL Connect which will allow mental-health professionals to actively manage this space with minimal barriers to entry. This will facilitate the provision of cutting-edge DCL experiences for the Decentraland community, and shall allow our project to provide even more value to the space.

The scope of creating mental health spaces within the metaverse is quite literally endless but we want to begin this journey within Decentraland by focusing first on the unique needs of the users. Our long-term vision includes scaling to incorporate events, NFT creations, dynamic building of scenes and exclusive content.
By doing this, we aim to further promote and encourage the adoption and use of Decentraland with the idea of making it the first metaverse platform to create engagement and traction for inclusive mental wellbeing

Cool project.

Will Decentraland users have access to Mental Health provisions?

I am all for this proposal. Mental health is a huge obstacle for many people to over come and live with. The more support there is the better. As far as I’m concerned mental health and the tools to deal with mental health issues should be taught in school from a very early age. Many people go their whole lives without the proper help or support they need. Many times, sadly, people feel they have no where and or, no one to turn to. You have my full support.

This is 1 of 3 grants that passed and were created by Seanny. All of which seem to have disappeared.

Hey everyone,

I trust this message finds you well, both in the physical world and within our vibrant virtual universe. It’s a privilege and an honor to introduce myself as the new CEO of Metaverse Architects.

Firstly, a heartfelt thank you to all of you for making Decentraland a revolutionary, ever-evolving space. I am genuinely thrilled to be part of this inspiring community, and I am looking forward to what we can achieve together.

Recent times have been a period of internal reformation for Metaverae Architects. We’ve restructured our team to better serve the evolving needs of the Metaverse. Today, I am thrilled to announce the re-deployment of our Mental Health Clinic in Decentraland.

As many of you may be aware, we deployed the first iteration of the Mind Easy Mental Health Clinic right next to Genesis Plaza in October 2022. However, this initial deployment, on an estate with over 350 parcels, faced quite a few fringe-case bugs, which hindered the experience for some users. Due to the large volume of mental health resources gathered in the build, it was difficult for us to scale down this experience, which led to unforeseen delays in our refactoring and optimizing of this experience for smaller parcels.

Another impacting factor on our redeployment time was the prioritization of other B2C Clients, namely the Roobet Casino experience and the KB Home experience; which had our entire team working on delivering that experience, pushing our redeployment to 2023.

One key point of feedback we received from the community is a lack of communication, directly from Metaverse Architects, regarding our projects, goals, aims, and overall work in Decentraland. I hope this I something I can constructively address, as the months roll out. We’ve been notified that several people were unaware of the Clinic’s new home, and how to access it, which is why I am publishing this update.

The Clinic now resides in its own dedicated world, and our objective remains the same: to provide a nurturing and confidential environment for discussing mental health issues, seeking advice, and learning coping strategies.

You may find the link to the world here:

Enjoy it!

Are you going to return the money, just because you prioritize paid clients?

I don’t really care about any links you posted.

Once when i felt bad, i went to your Mental Health Clinic and the scene crashed so hard…didn’t helped my mental health at all - it felt much worse after.

Explain, coherently.

I’m guessing this was back in October 2022 next to Genesis Plaza, and not in the updated version on a world?

The music is nice but there is nothing else here? Do you have a better link?

Thanks @HPrivakos for helping, the build is really peaceful!!


Where did you experience this @DedHeadJ ?

Yeah, this was back in October 22
