To finish a level, or complete a mission, can take time, a few attempts and a little research on how to overcome that final boss. Understanding mental health is no different; no one can be an expert straight away, and it’s right to find out more information before diving in.

The teams within the games industry are made up of incredible people, creating incredible worlds used by millions. But the gaming industry can see a higher rate of those working and living through mental health issues. It’s vital that companies understand the impact this can have, and how to better support teams. There is clear evidence that shows the most successful employers introduce a positive culture around mental health at work. This can be by having policies in place to support teams, an open culture that removes the stigma around mental health and making it clear where external support can come from; It’s not that difficult to introduce such steps with the right training. Launching very soon is a range of international training courses designed to help companies understand how they can approach mental health in the games industry. Register your interest to learn more and ensure you can book yourself on one of the first sessions!


Safe In Our World | Videogames Industry Mind Fitness Courses

 - Half Day Course | Worldwide

At Safe in Our World we recognise that training that is really effective is training that is specific to the needs of the delegates.

We have therefore worked with Mind Fitness to develop four bespoke training courses designed for our industry.

These are 3-hour sessions that can be delivered either online or in a live training environment, giving scientifically proven tools to improve the way teams think, feel and work.

The 4 courses are tailored for Designers | Publishers | Community Managers | Content Creators

The sessions look at the issues that undermine resilience in each section of the industry. They give delegates a wellbeing toolkit that is appropriate for the specific working conditions and culture, designed to optimise both performance and mental health.


Safe In Our World | Introduction to Mind Fitness

 - Half Day Course | Worldwide

The Introduction Package to Mind Fitness – 3 One Hour Online Training Modules

Module 1 – Mental Health Basic Awareness – Destigmatising Mental Health and Supporting Others

Module 2 – How to Look after your Mental Health

Module 3 – Personal Effectiveness through Mental Wellbeing

These modules can be taken separately but we recommend them being undertaken in order as a 3 hour course.

Together they will enable delegates to understand why we can all fall prey to poor mental health, and to have a range of techniques that will enable participants to combat anxiety and low mood and to bring themselves to the place where they can best learn and achieve their potential.

These are scientifically proven ways to improve how we think, feel and behave.

The package is the perfect foundation platform for all your employees and works well as an induction for new workers as part of your organisation’s Wellbeing Strategy.
