Video games mental health charity, Safe In Our World, has announced their Class of 2024 cohort of Ambassadors who will support in amplifying the charity’s message and mission in mental health awareness.
30 individuals were selected after receiving a record-breaking 220 applications. Safe In Our World is welcoming new voices from publishing and development, journalism, research, content creation, and other non-profit organizations. They each bring a unique perspective on improving mental health awareness in the video games industry with a myriad of experiences.
The Programme will be sponsored by Playground Games. Playground Games is a AAA Xbox Games Studio. Their mission is to make genre-defining video games for a global audience. They are proud to be the creator and developer of the award-winning Forza Horizon series. And to be developing Fable, a new beginning for a legendary franchise.
Playground Games Head of Studio, Trevor Williams, commented:
“Playground Games are delighted to be the sponsor for the 2024 Ambassador Programme. We all go through tough times in our lives whether professionally or personally and it is important to look after one another and work together to build a safe environment within gaming and our individual workplaces. We value Safe in Our World’s incredible determination to create and foster worldwide mental health awareness within the video game industry and strive to support our ambassadors in reaching this mission.”
