Level Up Mental Health

#LevelUpMentalHealth

Safe In Our World is challenging all companies within the video games industry to unite and commit to change. The worlds we create are a refuge for many, but we must consider our teams and the impact our industry has on their lives. We’re asking the entire video games industry to #LevelUpMentalHealth within their workplaces, ensuring that the environment is safe and supportive for their team’s mental health at all times.

From developers, publishers, service providers and retailers to content creators and beyond, our goal is simple: Create and foster worldwide awareness within the video game industry and eliminate the stigma around employees who live with mental health conditions.

Help us build change and join us as a founding member of level up mental health 2020. You’ll be displayed on the Safe In Our World website and be a part of our launch communications. Read on or head to our Q&A page!

Why Now?

Around the world, data shows that those who work within the video games industry are often more likely to live with a mental health condition. In fact, in one recent census in the UK, it was reported that 31% of those asked revealed that they live with anxiety, depression or both (the national average is 17%) and globally, ‘crunch’ culture is being reported and discussed more than ever.

We’re pleased to see so much support for our cause from the industry, but now it’s time to turn that support into action. The Level Up Mental Health campaign will form a major part of our activities now and in the future and as an industry, we’ll drive forward from that starting point, together
