Fractured Minds
Safe In Our World is a New Charity for Mental Health in Games
Written Thursday, October 10, 2019 By Matt Lorrigan

A group of video game professionals have started a charity called Safe In Our World, focusing on promoting mental health awareness in the games industry. 

The charity launched their website on World Mental Health Day, and is using the site to highlight a range of topics, including a look at the games that tackle issues of mental health head-on, such as the impressive Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The site currently showcases high-profile games like Celeste and smaller titles such as Fractured Minds, a BAFTA Young Game Designer Awards winner created by 17 year old Emily Mitchell that attempts to journey through the human psyche.

Safe In Our World are working with a range of video game companies to improve the guidelines surrounding mental health in the workplace, and have stated they will be lobbying the UK government to do more for those struggling with mental health issues.

The charity will continue to draw attention to games that take an interesting look at mental health on their website, as well as publishing the personal journeys that different professionals in the industry with their own mental health issues. Fractured Minds, one of the games highlighted, will be launching soon digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Well, this is pretty much guaranteed to ruin games just like modern feminism and pro-gender dysphoria agendas have.

Whilst gaming has many proven health benefits, trying to shoehorn in mental health elements will sink the game in question just as fast as the identity politics garbage that SJWs are trying to force on us as well.

Simply answers to complex problems. School shooter... blame COD.... Suicide... blame Dungeons and Dragons. This is the same thing that was being pushed since the 80s. No focus on positive elements of gaming, such as improved reflexes, improve problem solving, strategic thinking. And no research into why Autistic kids fail in our school systems but are highly proficient in gaming...
