Our Work Changes Lives

We’re run by health professionals who love games (and gamers who love mental health!)

Help us to create mental health resources for gamers, and the gaming community.

Ever feel down, lonely, anxious or depressed?

You are not alone. In fact, 30-50% people suffer mental health issues at some point in their life.

They are completely treatable, and you need not suffer in silence. Unfortunately, only 1/3 of those affected seek help.

CheckPoint is a charity that provides mental health resources for gamers and the gaming community.

Our missions are to raise awareness for mental health issues, reduce stigma, and improve wellbeing in our community. We are passionate about using video games for positive wellbeing and resilience.

PatchGaming is a community in which people with mental illnesses can interact with others who are also suffering from similar issues.

There is a voice channel called “I Need To Talk” with trained listeners who can be there to lend a helping hand in tough situations.

GamerMates is a pro-mental health gaming community which promotes resilience and self-care as well as providing tips and resources for your wellbeing.
