Mr. Obvious

You don't need to have a "physical or mental disability" to medically benefit from social contact in virtual worlds. Depression and isolation are not "disabilities." Rather they are conditions that all people can suffer from at different times in their life. As an example: the benefits of social contact to help heal heart attack and surgical patients is well documented in medical literature. Support groups for recovering alcoholics are also very obvious examples of the health benefits of virtual worlds for anyone.

SL has a support group for stroke survivors. One of the first places I landed in SL way back in 2007. Very nice people.

Secondlife has helped me after dealing with several strokes and a huge decade of deep depression.
Unsure if positive changes in my life would have ever happened had i not been able be part of secondlife.
secondlife allows me to walk again each day something reallife says i cannot do anymore.

This article reminds me of someone else
years ago hamlet.she helped bring discussion early on of the therapeutic benefits that can be found for those with crippling illness.

You remember hamlet the temporary one?
