Long-distance and long-duration space expeditions will in the future give rise to different types of challenging tasks on how to maintain mental health for the crewmembers. This paper describes the application and feasibility of Virtual Reality Mental Hygiene (VRMH) as a means to reduce stress by members of the LUNARK expedition. The members of the expedition lived in confinement for 3 months in a moon habitat in the arctic regions of Greenland.
