BehaVR’s mission is to address the significant unmet needs and barriers to care in behavioral health. Global prevalence and impact of unmanaged stress, pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD and substance use disorders is increasing, while barriers to care remain, and global clinician capacity falls further behind demand.

To help close this gap, BehaVR creates digital therapeutic programs for behavioral health using the unmatched psychological and neurological power of Virtual Reality (VR). BehaVR’s personalized, progressive programs combine evidence-based patient education and motivational techniques with the strengths of VR for de-activating the body’s stress response, building resilience and non-reactivity, and disarming triggers via exposure therapy and extinction. Pilot studies and RCT results for BehaVR’s chronic pain program far exceed minimum clinically important differences, and BehaVR’s active pipeline covers pain, anxiety, and SUD/OUD.
