Why was Psious selected to be part of the Barcelona Health Hub?
-Psious is an innovative process that uses Virtual Reality as a form of CBT to help those who suffer from Phobia's and anxiety
-Studies (Penate-Castro et al. (2014) have shown that using VR combined with CBT therapy results in lower abandonment ratios- patients are less likely to drop out of therapy
-Here at Psious we believe that mental health treatments should have value, quality and worth
