Manuela Ferrari
Assistant Professor and Researcher @Department of Psychiatry, McGill University and Douglas Mental Health University Institute
Dr. Manuela Ferrari is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University and Researcher at the Douglas Research Centre in Montreal. Dr. Ferrari applies participatory design to e-Mental Health interventions to enhance access to care, treatment, and client engagement with services. She is developing a unique program of research on video game-based interventions for mental health promotion, treatment, and anti-stigma campaigns. For Dr. Ferrari, video games can further improve access to care by decreasing stigma and promote recovery. Video games can also be used as a powerful, interactive, and creative media tool, to promote awareness and understanding of how people experience mental illness.
