*New Partner Alert* - Safe In Our World
iGGi is proud to introduce our new partner Safe In Our World. The charity (which was founded in 2017 by a group of dedicated folks from games industry) wants to foster positive mental health wellbeing and deliver support not only for players but also developers, publishers, retailers and the other incredible folk and teams who make up the video games industry.
The main goal of Safe In Our World is to create and foster worldwide mental health awareness within the video game industry; to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health, to make it a natural topic of discussion, and to promote the dialogue surrounding mental health so people are not afraid to reach out for help if they need it.
iGGi is definitely happy to get behind that goal!
As part of our pledge, we are committing to address the following points over the forthcoming year and beyond:
Continue to create awareness among iGGi Staff, Supervisors and Researchers in respect of mental health related matters
Make sure that all iGGi Supervisors have completed some form of mental health training
Offer access to Safe In Our World’s resources to all iGGi Staff and PGRs, including training on mental health first aid and similar
Update our annual mental health newsletter which contains important local contacts and resources and other information relevant to the topic
Campaign for the cause, disseminate and foster “best practice” and support Safe In Our World in its mission
Collaborate with Safe In Our World via sharing mental health-related iGGi research/publications and via joint events such as workshops, talks, panels, etc.
So, here’s an official WELCOME to the Safe In Our World Team! We look forward to working together on that mission. #LevelUpMentalHealth
