We don’t provide treatment at my organization, but we typically build on life skills and resiliency. i think video games could help with those items.
Devika Deonarine
31:47
Agreed Amy!
Michael Kirouac
31:56
I think Virtual Reality and Puzzle type games could help in those areas

In using gaming as an intervention, how have you addressed the security of client/ youth data for agencies and practices that have a high threshold of protecting confidentiality
Tamir @Frayme_Cadre
35:36
Thanks Jenna, we have noted down that question for the Q&A
Devika Deonarine

Michael Kirouac
47:41
so a question what type of games are the best that could be used to help improve mental health. I believe the games that could be used are Rpg, puzzle visual novels and virtual reality games could maybe used is this correct?
Devika @Frayme_Cadre
48:06
Thank you Michael
Devika @Frayme_Cadre
48:27
we will ask that question during the Q&A
KELVIN KWONG
49:01
Considering that entertainment tends to be the main reason youth/anyone plays video games, how do you make the idea of treatment through video games attractive enough to engage the youth in the first place that the youth "wants" to play for treatment and doesn't feel like they "need" to do this?
Devika @Frayme_Cadre
49:43
Thank you Kevin, we will ask that question during the Q&A
Karim Grant

From Sarah McIIwaine: Shameless plug: If you want to know more about commercial games and mental health stigma, check out the review Manuela and I wrote about that topic: https://mental.jmir.org/2019/5/e12418/
Sarah McIlwaine
56:18
There is also a figure in that article that has a list of all the games we checked out, so perhaps a good starting point if you want to take part in the review ;)

Hmm there's a program about problem gambling and the law of large numbers that's meant to be informational, but it isn't really a game.
