It’s fantastic to see in-game activations supporting the charity, and driving the conversation surrounding mental health forward. Prioritising these topics and resources within games is key to spreading player awareness and support. Every player should have access to life-saving resources and information, and mental health is no exception.

“In addition, to highlight some of the fantastic work the charity has been doing in the video games industry, their banners will now appear in Football Manager via the pitch-side hoardings, continuing our commitment since the start of the pandemic to feature mental health advertising space in-game.”

Neil Brock, Sports Interactive – Community & Customer Experience Manager

We have been supported in a number of games creating a space for Safe In Our World, including recent titles such as Martha Is Dead.

In the game Martha is Dead, players are provided with a resource link to the organization Safe in Our World. “If you or someone you know is struggling, information and crisis resources are available at safeinourworld.org/find-help

Safe In Our World also collaborated with Xbox on their mental health accessibility guidelines; a fantastic resource to game developers and publishers looking to get mental health right.

We hope to see more game creators prioritise mental health within their studios and their player bases, and applaud Football Manager for supporting Safe In Our World in their latest season.
