Behavioral Health Group provides interactive, personable and immersive and embodied treatment solution where you’re in the therapeutic experience with the community - patient-led, patient-focused and patient-guided group therapy with CBT and DBT principles. You’re not just looking at it through your computer with your provider - rather, you are interacting with the community with the metaverse. Artificial-Intelligence will optimize the patient journey, allocate groups systematically and enable the digital experience to remain confidential, convenient and cost-effective.
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): mindfulness, acceptance, and emotion regulation
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
There is a growing need to train and deploy health care professionals for mental health and behavioral wellness. Following the COVID-19 lockdowns, many therapist and psychiatrists took advantage of work from home (WFH) lifestyle and don’t appear to be returning to the office as quickly, if they returned at all.
Group therapy helps individuals develop communication skills and socialization skills, and allows clients to learn how to express their issues and accept criticism from others. Group therapy allows individuals to develop self-awareness by listening to others with similar issues. Group therapy in Decentraland’s community provides a low-cost alternative to costly, inaccessible health care and support with a community of individuals to support, validate and listen to other group member’s challenges
The group therapy sessions that will be facilitated include:
- Self-help Group
- Medication Group
- Interpersonal Therapy Group
- Encounter Group
- Psychodrama Group
Benefits - For one to two hour sessions or ad hoc meet-ups, groups of 20-30 individuals (or more) in each group will benefit from the camaraderie, Sharing Different perspectives, Accountability, Building Confidence, Self-discovery, Transitions and Confidentiality
Connecting people with common treatment goals/plans to categorize individuals with similar behavioral traits, family dynamics, relationships and cultures with optimize the the patient journey and group/provider selection. The historical data on group can be used to predict future outcomes of new patients with commonalities - which of course, would be confidential, encrypted and masked.

his research project will be carried out in three phases:
- Phase 1: Data Collection. Determine qualitative and quantitative analysis survey elements and dimensions.
- Phase 2: Data Analysis. Perform quantitative and qualitative cost-benefit analysis
- Phase 3: Recommendations. Produce suggestions on potential costs, benefits and solutions for the DAO community proposal based on the research findings.
With over 10+ years in the healthcare, life science and insurance industry, I and confident our research proposal will identify optimal and effective recommendations, tools and resources for fostering community experience and promoting well-being. I am eager to understand the GAO perspective on supporting mental health in decentraland .
