Community Managers Mental Health Course and Expanded Level Up Partner Offering Increases Engagement Across The Industry

London, UK. October 8th, 2021, Videos Games Mental Health Charity, Safe In Our World (http://www.safeinourworld.org) today announced a series of initiatives to celebrate its 2nd anniversary on World Mental Health Day 2021 , with a year of achievement in scaling both the charity and its outward community and industry programmes.

From expanding the initial target of training 50 community managers to delivering mental health first aid training to nearly 200 community managers globally by the end of 2021, funded by Jingle Jam 2020, every initiative undertaken by the charity now has room to expand and reach more people than ever before. And with 80+ studios, publishers and developers signed up as Level Up Partners, committed to positive change within the industry and within their own businesses, a bespoke partner hub was delivered in the second half of 2021; delivering more information, training, and resources to more employees than ever. In addition, in May 2021 at the height of the last Covid-19 lockdown, the charity launched the Safer Together Discord channel, including a forum for community managers, aimed at bringing the video games community closer together.

“We are enormously proud of the work our fantastic team and a long list of supporters, from Ambassadors to Trustees, have achieved in the last year.” Said Leo Zullo, Co-founder and Chair of Safe In Our World. “We’ve gone from a Trustee-led organisation to a charity with multiple employees and initiatives that make a huge difference in the lives of so many. This was always the plan, and we would like to thank the community, industry, and all those involved directly for their hard work, commitment and drive to deliver exceptional programs and real-world impact on behalf of Safe In Our World.”

Safe In Our World is pleased to invite the videogames community to celebrate these milestones together, both on the official website, as well as via social channels and the Safer Together Discord.
