With games captivating our youth and providing a social foundation, there is a potent opportunity to use video games and esports to teach and support wellbeing.
headspace, National Youth Mental Health Organisation, offers mental health support to young people aged 12 to 25. In 2018, we began a partnership with headspace to promote mental health awareness among League of Legends players, kicking off initiatives such as the Oceanic Pro League (OPL) headspace round.
Encouraging Healthy Habits
Through League of Legends, young people can build healthy habits to look after their mental health as they learn and play together. A large part of the learning initiative focuses on supporting young people as they develop strategies to respond to adversity, reduce the impact of bullying, and demonstrate appropriate online behaviour.
