The Avatar Project
The Avatar Project is a Vichealth funded Victoria University administered program researching the mental health of teens in virtual environments, specifically issues such as community engagement, self esteem, and self determination.
The Avatar Project is proud to have recently been awarded Community Technology Innovator of the Year by Connecting Up, which showcases the best in community-focused web, telecommunications and core technology strategies in nonprofit, business and government settings.
The project is currently in the research phase, with several publications due later this year (2009).
We have established a sustainable working relationship with the schools and young people involved, thanks to the continued support of Vichealth and SFYS.
