EGX Rezzed teams up with CheckPoint and Gaming the Mind
The CheckPoint will be a place for visitors to take a break from the noise, people and photos on the show floor. Visitors can chill out in peace and quiet, try out new wellbeing tech, and get tips on managing their mental health. This is a space for the visitors to use as they need, and CheckPoint and Gaming the Mind staff will be there to assist them in achieving whatever that is.
CheckPoint is a charity that connects mental health resources with video games, by improving the wellbeing of those who play games and advocating for the use of games for good. Their missions are to raise awareness of mental health issues, help those in need, and to reduce stigma.
Gaming the Mind are dedicated to exploring the crossover between video games and mental health! Through media, community outreach, education, and collaborating with healthcare professionals, they aim to promote positive mental health within the gamer community. You can check them out on twitter.
EGX Rezzed is London's biggest games event, featuring hundreds of playable games with a strong focus on PC and indie titles as well as talks by well known game creators, a career fair offering advice on getting a job in games, board games and more. Tickets are available here.
