In a Nutshell, ep. 17: Playing Mind Games with Suhaavi Kochhar

03 jun 2024 ,

In the Vox podcast In a Nutshell, hosts Jara Majerus and Antonia Leise take a deep dive into the university's most interesting, strange, and exciting research. Every two weeks, they invite Radboud researchers to talk about their favourite topics – explained in bite-sized episodes. In today's episode, Jara is exploring the link between video games and mental health.

Why do we need to change our outlook on video games? How can gaming help young people to quit smoking? And what role can technology play in mental health care globally?

In the seventeenth episode of In a Nutshell, we delve into the world of mental health games. Together with this week’s guest Suhaavi Kochhar, we will debunk the stereotype of gaming, explore the benefits video games can have on our psyche, and learn more about how technology could help us bridge the global mental health gap.

Suhaavi Kochhar is a PhD candidate in the Behavioural Science Institute at Radboud University. In her research, she focuses on intervention science and how it can play a supportive role in the treatment of addiction.
