We show libraries how to launch VRtality, a program that supports positive teen mental health through co-designing a virtual reality experience.
There is a joy and wonder and affordances of VR that make it especially suited to mental-health work. VR enables learning and exploring together. It is a creative and novel space for co-design."

The TEEN Experience
At the end many of them [teen co-designers] signed off with messages thanking us for having the program. It was really great to hear them be so positive about the experience."
