World Mental Health Day is only two days away, and that day will mark the two-year anniversary of the mental health charity Safe In Our World. They're celebrating the occasion with a giveaway, expanded initiatives, and more.
In a news post released today, Safe In Our World announced that they've had a very good year when it came to fundraising and furthering their goal of removing the stigma around mental health. With the help of the funds raised by Jingle Jam 2020, Safe In Our World has been able to train nearly 200 community managers globally in delivering mental health first aid training, nearly quadruple that of their initial goal. In addition, with over 80 studios, publishers, and developers signed up as Level Up Partners, a bespoke partner hub was created in the second half of 2021 to provide information and training to more employees. Finally, the team managed to launch its official Discord channel, and it currently has over 600 members. The team is celebrating their anniversary with a giveaway, courtesy of some of their Level Up Partners.
Leo Zullo, chair trustee and co-founder of Safe In Our World, in his own statement, said:
We are enormously proud of the work our fantastic team and a long list of supporters, from Ambassadors to Trustees, have achieved in the last year. We’ve gone from a Trustee-led organisation to a charity with multiple employees and initiatives that make a huge difference in the lives of so many. This was always the plan, and we would like to thank the community, industry, and all those involved directly for their hard work, commitment and drive to deliver exceptional programs and real-world impact on behalf of Safe In Our World.
