Video games mental health charity Safe In Our World has today announced the launch of a dedicated hub for Covid-19 resources, information and advice.

With the advent of lockdowns across Europe and the US, Safe In Our World has launched the hub for those in need of support, advice and information in these unprecedented times. The Covid-19 hub is available online here and will be updated regularly.

The hub offers advice on managing stress, coping with isolation, relaxation and exercise techniques, as well as highlighting video games that may aid those suffering or finding it hard to cope with the changes in daily life.

Leo Zullo, chairman of Safe in our World, said:

“As a charity, we’re doing our best to support those around us, and the wider industry. Whether working from home within the industry, or our players, everyone will be adjusting to a new normal.”

“This dedicated hub is designed to signpost techniques to help deal with the challenge of isolation. We’ll continue to do everything we can to help.”

Officially unveiled in 2019 on World Mental Health Day, Safe in Our World is an accredited charity supported by games industry luminaries, veterans and ambassadors across the world.

Its mission is to create an online destination where people can seek help, gain access to resources and information, and discover stories from real people within and surrounding the games industry. 

Safe in Our World says it aims to enable conversations by destigmatizing the mental health conditions; helping a generation of creators, professionals and players come together in support of each other.
