Combating Social Isolation

The Anxiety and Behavioral Health Clinic located in the Psychology Department at Florida State University was funded by the military to develop web-based intervention programs in the areas of stress and social isolation. The objective of the intervention was to help participants combat the feeling of social isolation by providing them with information on recognizing symptoms, dispelling common misconceptions, and suggesting coping mechanisms.


The challenge was to create engaging and relevant information that would improve the mental health of the participants. 


A multi-dimensional approach was taking to provide a rich experience for the user.  The course contained videos of subject matter experts as well as video scenarios demonstrating content organized by seven myths of social isolation. A video character was used to introduce the training and provide key definitions of common terms associated with the feelings of social isolation. The same person also provided the background voice to describe common situations that the participant can identify with and provide examples of the symptoms people feel when they are socially isolated.
