In this first project; Empatia 1.0 we aim to show people reality from a new perspective, the eyes of others.
With this immersion we seek to dive into the depths of the mind of a person with a severe depressive diagnosis and show how this reality is; which means for those with the disorder and thus have the opportunity to suggest the search for new ways of prevention and treatment.
The Veridis project proposes to expand the nervous system through interconnection and constant innovation. We want to bring a sense of empathic presence through Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality technologies, and thus create a new portal for self-knowledge and the possibility of exploring new universes.
Human interaction with the real world, psycho-emotional and symbolic, leads us to thoroughly explore the sensory and visual/sound models of the human being in order to generate information of impact, empathy, and awareness about the different levels of realities parallel to the real world.
"WHO data indicate that every 40 seconds a person commits suicide in the world. In Brazil, every 45 minutes. This makes suicide the second leading cause of death among young people between 15 and 29 years old. Suicidal ideation is a relatively difficult to decipher when the intention of committing the act is not verbalized by the person, however, data indicate that almost 100% of the people who committed suicide had some type of mental disorder. an excellent way to prevent suicide. A fundamental aspect for that to happen is to develop an empathic capacity that allows to understand the pain of the other, making possible to help him seriously and without underestimating his suffering.

“Despite stigmas and prejudices, depression and anxiety must be seen as other health problems.
Treatment can involve different fronts such as changes in lifestyle, psychotherapy and drug treatment. Prejudice with mental disorders has been decreasing but much remains to be done. Seeking help is critical. ”

"In times of social isolation and the uncertainties arising from the pandemic, it is important to deepen the theme involving a suicide prevention strategy.
Psychic suffering is often silenced and the will to die can be present as a way to stop the pain.
Accessing people and being sensitive to welcoming listening is an efficient care strategy in addition to directing appropriate treatment. "
