It is estimated that one person dies every 40 seconds due to suicide and there are indications that for each fatal suicide attempt conducted by an adult, there may be more than 20 other suicide attempts. Public healthcare resources to support individuals who are at risk of mental ill health are increasingly thinly stretched. This calls for new ways of disseminating mental health knowledge and support to those who need, but lack it. In this demonstration, we present an interactive Augmented Reality (AR) system for mental health information dissemination and self-Assessment. The advantage of the system is that it provides direct pathway to relevant mental health resources and offers a positive incentive and interventions for at-risk users.
