CheckPoint's Pro-Mental-Health Gaming Community

How Does This Work?

GamerMates is a pro-mental health gaming community. We’ve made it super easy to find like-minded people (your gamermates!) who you can play your favourite video games with. You can find local folk, or someone on the other side of the world. You can play anything from Overwatch to Animal Crossing.

What you decide to do is your choice – with an understanding that everyone here is supportive of each other.

I Don’t Feel Like Opening Up.

That’s totally okay. We’re not here to tell you to share personal information. For many people, just having friends they can hang out with in a place they know to be safe and supportive is enough to get them through a tough time. For others, they might want to find someone to chat to, and if you both agree to it, that’s great! GamerMates is there for you.

What If Someone Says Something I Don’t Like?

Please end the game session and discuss this with a mod as soon as possible. Remember to include the person’s CheckPoint username.

What Does Pro-Mental Health Mean?

It means you understand that everybody has mental health, that everybody has strengths, and vulnerabilities, and you respect and support that. It means you are interested in improving your own wellbeing, and helping others, by being part of a supportive community here at CheckPoint. This is designed to be a group of people who all benefit emotionally and socially through the power of games – and one another.
