What Can I Access With a Free Account?


All of our mental health resources.

That’s right – everything we have to offer for individual self-care is free. You just need to register, which you can do in one click, via email, Twitter or Facebook. And remember, if you change your mind you can delete your account at any time.

This includes:

Self-Care Guides

A regularly updated collection of publications all about self-care and mental resilience. We’ve even added a video game flavour to them so they’re even more accessible to our audience. They come in PDF format or can be done as an online course.

Whenever you download or complete a self-care module, you’ll even unlock an achievement!


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.


Participate in our active forums, where you can make friends, chat about games, and learn all about mental health via an anonymous Q&A system answered by real doctors and psychologists.


When you sign in you unlock points based achievements for engaging with CheckPoint. Level up your mental health journey today.

What If I Change My Mind?

You can downgrade your membership at any time. We won’t have any hard feelings 🙂 Similarly if you want to upgrade, you can do that at any time too! AND each tier comes with the option to donate to CheckPoint – which is tax deductible in Australia.

What Is GamerMates+?

It’s a more exclusive version of GamerMates just for our Chips, Flagbearers and Heroes. GamerMates is a pro-mental health gaming community where you can get together to play, chat, and make friends.

Free Games?!

Yes!!! Thanks to our very generous donors we can offer our members free Steam keys for heaps of games. We’ll send our Flagbearers and Heroes a new game every couple of months (or until our supply runs out).

Why Isn’t Everything Free?

Running a nonprofit isn’t free! We want to provide you with the absolute best resources we can, to improve wellbeing, do research, develop games, and more. This means we pay staff, we travel, we buy devices and games for our community to use – the list goes on.

But The Mental Health Stuff Is Free, Right?

Yes, absolutely. And it always will be. Our model means that all our personal mental health resources are unlocked with the basic free account, and the cool extra added stuff for supporters is for higher tiers. It helps us remain sustainable.

Why Aren’t You Using Patreon?

Simple – Patreon takes a 30% cut. This way, we keep all of the proceeds and it all goes back to the audience. We have a secure payment gateway and multiple options. If you still don’t feel comfortable but want to donate, please do get in touch and we can organise something else.

Just Some of the Perks…
