Play Your Way with Safe In Our World this Mental Health MonthPosted: 1 May 2022
For mental health month this year, we’re encouraging you to play your way.
Playing the games that mean the most to us is how we thrive on our personal connections with mental health and gaming. Whether you choose Animal Crossing or Dark Souls to relax, it’s the variety of games that players hold close to their hearts that highlights the individuality of these relationships.
What is Safe In Our World working on?
This year, we want to grow our #LevelUp Campaign to support more companies in more effective ways. That means more training, 1-1 guidance on implementing mental health strategies within the workplace, and content surrounding how to take the next steps! We’re working on resources for students and new-to-industry folk to know where support can be found, and what to look for when applying for jobs.
We’re committing to train more Community Managers and Content Creators in mental health training, free of charge. We’re growing our podcast, website and social platforms to be able to bring awareness to topics that are often under the radar and bring to light more resources and good practice within the games industry.
