What can you say to someone whose child died in their arms from suicide? What possible words can ever make a parent feel whole again after such a devastating tragedy?
CHENGDU, China (PRWEB) April 11, 2018
Personal experiences played a significant role in Gavin Crombie’s and Digital Frontier’s decision to create ‘Infinite Possibilities’ Suicide Awareness and Depression Campaign. With the loss of someone very close to him becoming the trigger to help others with suicide tendencies, Infinite Possibilities could bridge the gap between life and death.
The statistics are staggering. On a daily basis, approximately 3,000 people take their own lives. This equates to 120 people per hour. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) suicide is accounted for 1.4% of all deaths worldwide. It is the second leading cause of death in the 15-29-year old’s age range.
It was statistics such as this that forged the desire to provide an alternative recovery program. The goal was to create Infinite Possibilities which, using the latest virtual reality technology provided VR CGI experiences and video content which would engage and transform the minds of those who used it.
Crombie states: ‘What can you say to someone whose child died in their arms from suicide? What possible words can ever make a parent feel whole again after such a devastating tragedy?
Digital Frontier’s aim is to use their experience in virtual reality, as authors and filmmakers creating technology that creates space between the thoughts of suicide and the act. Sometimes, for those with suicide tendencies, space to think is a much-needed missing component along with highly targeted virtual worlds that transport the individual into a more harmonized mindset. Using the powerful information transmission power of virtual reality, this program has been designed for all who are vulnerable and has been proven to have more than an 80% retention rate leading to permanent change in those with suicide tendencies.
Crombie states: We aim to show the breadth and depth of life to those who are vulnerable. Infinite Possibilities aims to be the fence at the top of the cliff and not the ambulance at the bottom. We are serious about saving lives.’
So many people are affected by the devastating loss of family and friends from suicide and so, public awareness of Infinite Possibilities could lead to a great many of these lives being saved. Suicide prevention is at the heart of this campaign and there are plans for greater awareness in schools, mental health clinics and crisis care facilities.
The aim of Crombie and the team at Digital Frontier is to generate public awareness on a global basis for the VR Suicide Prevention and Awareness Toolkit and App funding campaign with Indiegogo.
