UC Davis Video Game Therapy Project


UC Davis Video Game Therapy Project

I’m Ed Smith, a Davis Personal Injury Lawyer. A freshman from UC Davis has created a nonprofit project to assist individuals that are facing hard times to alleviate their stresses through video games. Video games can act as a virtual escape for players to take their minds from the real world and enjoy their very own personal worlds.


Dillion Hill is a 17-year-old freshman at UC Davis. Hill initiated a nonprofit project in February of 2016, “Gamer’s Gift”, which aims to assist individuals facing life problems to alleviate their stresses with the help of video games. Hill began visiting children’s hospitals and nursing homes in the Sacramento and Fresno areas. “Gamer’s Gift” is a form of therapeutic treatment that assists the young and the elderly through technology. Hill’s website may be viewed here.

Gamer’s Gift Inspiration

Dillion Hill’s inspiration came from his fifth grade best friend, Chris, whom was battling leukemia off and on throughout his life. Chris’s cancer came and went away as Chris approached his high school years. Hill would play video games with Chris to take his best friend’s mind off his stresses. Hill was inspired by his friend Chris to assist patients from children’s hospitals and nursing homes to play videos as a way of alleviating their stress levels where the creation of “Gamer’s Gift” emerged as a result.

Gamer’s Gift Launch

Dillion Hill’s “Gamer’s Gift” allows the young and the elderly to enjoy a virtual reality. Hill’s anticipation for his project aims to allow patients to alleviate their stresses from their conditions and explore the realms of virtual reality. The concept of video games is the underlying key to bringing friends and family together and escaping from reality to enjoy the simple things life has to offer for each and every one of us. An upcoming orientation event will be taking place on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm. More details regarding this event may be viewed on Dillion Hill’s “Gamer’s Gift” Facebook page.
