Scroll to content

Proudly Kickstarted and presented by Way Down Deep, The CheckPoint Series is here to improve wellbeing, boost resilience, and teach how games can be used for good.

CheckPoint is a non profit organisation that connects mental health resources with video games. CheckPoint believes games can help recovery and even be therapeutic. Their mission is to support the people who play and make games, and to use games for good. They do this by raising awareness of mental health issues, reducing stigma, and providing a safe peer-support community for gamers. The organisation is run by both mental health and games industry professionals, enabling CheckPoint’s reach to span both industries, and ensuring that the information and education they provide is accurate, relevant and implementable.
