We are thrilled to announce our next event will be OZ Comic-Con Perth, where we will be collaborating with ReachOut Australia to provide a chill out space.
This is sure to be great fun. And remember, it's perfectly normal at any convention, event or gathering, to feel like you're not at your best. Sometimes everyone needs a time out. Whether it's because you're feeling overwhelmed, tired from all the activities, or you just want to take a step back and recharge: CheckPoint is again hosting the successful ReachOut Room to be there for you.
What is the ReachOut Room?
Cons can get hectic, so take a break from the noise, people and photos in the ReachOut Room, a space run by online youth mental health service ReachOut.com and CheckPoint, a charity to connect mental health and gaming.
We'll be there both days to help out. We can talk about awesome mental health apps and games, we can give tips on mindfulness and breathing exercises, and of course, we'll have plenty of bean bags to stretch your legs.
CheckPoint hosts ReachOut Rooms at this event and others across Australia.
So come along and Meet Us at the CheckPoint - where we are proud to connect you with ReachOut resources, activities, colouring, iPads full of helpful apps, comfy beanbags, and of course, a bit of peace and quiet.
