August: Anxiety & PanicPosted: 1 Aug 2022
This month, the team at Safe In Our World will be focusing on Anxiety & Panic.
We’re going to be exploring what anxiety can look like, its relationship to panic attacks, and how we can support ourselves and each other when experiencing it.
Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. Whether you’re nervous about a life event or anxious about sitting an exam. During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal. However, if it begins to interfere with your day-to-day activities, this is a sign to reach out for support.
We have a lot of resources already looking into what anxiety is, how it can present itself, and how we can support ourselves here, but there is a wider conversation to be had within the community on how we can use games to reduce anxiety, and highlight examples of accurate depictions within characters.
Here are just some of the things you’ll be seeing from us this month:
- Mental health related games highlights
- Twitch LDN Stand – 6th August
- New podcast episodes
- New streams
- Discord Community Games
- Information on Panic Attacks and Panic Disorder
- ‘Mario Runs for Me’ – How the mobile game helps Ben with panic attacks
- How Indie Games Turn Negative Emotions into Stories
