Focusing on health-care, in the last few decades advanced technologies have become crucial keys in supporting subjective well-being. Among them, Virtual Reality has been proven to be effective for mental health promotion in several research studies. Although the dramatic development in the field of Virtual Reality system, there are still important problems related to the use of this technology. Within this perspective, the growing availability, low-cost and easy-to-use of Mobile Virtual Reality (i.e., the integration of Virtual Reality system on mobile devices such as smartphone and tablet) represents a meaningful opportunity to support mental health interventions. The present chapter will first briefly describe Mobile Virtual Reality. Then, a Mobile Virtual Reality design practice will be presented. Finally, the current application of Mobile Virtual Reality to enhance subjective well-being will be discussed, with the support of concrete examples and research studies-analysis.
