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 non profit organisation that connects mental health resources with video games. We believe games can help recovery, and even be therapeutic. Our missions are to raise awareness of mental health issues, help those in need, and to reduce stigma.

CheckPoint’s Discord Communities


PatchGaming is a community in which people with mental illnesses can interact with others who are also suffering from similar issues. Our goal is to create an environment which provides an outlet for all its members to express themselves, be accepted, and reduce stigma in mental health.

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. We have gaming sessions, the “game of the month” club, dozens of channels and much more. We operate under a safe space policy so this is a great entry point if you feel overwhelmed or are sensitive.
