Free Mental Health Training for the Video Games Industry - Dec/Jan
We are thrilled to announce the launch of a new series of mental health training courses that we are offering for free to individuals in the games industry and wider community. The £50,000 worth of bespoke training, created and delivered by our partners at Mind Fitness, is open to anyone but has been developed with marginalised and under-represented individuals in mind. This brings our total training investment for the industry to an amazing £140,000.
With 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem of some kind each year in England, we are committed to fostering worldwide mental health awareness within the video game industry. Individuals are welcome and encouraged to sign up for as many of our free mental health training courses as they want to, and can do so over at TicketSource now. Our training is delivered online and is available to anyone, globally.
The series of courses offers:
– keynote lectures focusing on the history of mental health discrimination and systemic inequalities;
– awareness courses to provide information and coping strategies to support wellbeing;
– and in-depth mental health first aid courses.
