Pandemic Stress Tips™

S . T . A . R . C

Wayne State University


Using your phone's built in Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities to bring you insightful information on managing stress during a pandemic...

Due to the recent pandemic, people may find themselves more stressed than usual. For this reason, we want to bring the psychiatrist to you...

Arash Javanbakht, M. D., psychiatrist and director of the Stress, Trauma, & Anxiety Research Clinic (S.T.A.R.C.) at Wayne State University, School of Medicine, will give you expert advice on how to deal and cope with the everyday stressors brought about by a global pandemic; all in the comfort of your own home and while maintaining a safe distance. Hang out with Dr. Arash and his pup in this immersive AR experience, and maybe learn a few things too.

Simply pick a module -> point your camera at a nearby floor -> press "Tap to Start" to place and start the module. Next thing you know, you are seeing a life-size rendering or Dr. Arash covering the selected topic.

Don't have an AR capable device? You can still get the advice you need by switching to VR mode, which is available in each module.
