The VRtue Product Manifesto/Philosophy:


At VRtue, we believe that mental health is a fundamental part of our overall well-being and should be treated with the same level of care and attention as physical health. We recognize that mental health challenges can be isolating and overwhelming, and that traditional forms of therapy and support may not be accessible or effective for everyone.


Our solution, VRtue, is rooted in the belief that everyone should have access to affordable, personalized, and effective mental health support. VRtue unites individuals who are suffering from mental health challenges and equips them with the resources, gamified therapies, and virtual community support they need to thrive.


We understand that mental health support is not a one-size-fits-all solution. That's why VRtue offers support across the different stages and phases of mental health support and growth. Whether you are looking to meet with a support group, gain a better scientific understanding of what you're going through, or simply do something to feel better, VRtue has something to offer.


At VRtue, we also recognize that mental health challenges can be stigmatizing and that individuals may not feel comfortable sharing their experiences with others. That's why our solution is designed to provide a safe and anonymous space for individuals to connect with others who have similar challenges.


We also understand that mental health challenges are not static and that individuals may experience different phases of their journey. That's why VRtue allows individuals to track their moods and growth over time, providing valuable insights and metrics that can be used to inform ongoing support and treatment.


Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that mental health is a journey that requires ongoing support, education, and self-reflection. We are committed to providing a comprehensive and personalized solution that meets the unique needs of every individual who uses VRtue.
