This Dark Souls YouTuber Shares The Value of Talking About Mental Health

Paragon is a popular YouTube user who posts weekly videos about the Dark Souls series. Last month, he decided to use his platform to share his thoughts on mental health, talking about not just how video games have been a part of his mental healthy journey with PTSD and anxiety, but also how having a community like that of his viewers can be a hugely positive force in someone’s life.

Paragon followed up with two related videos — one about how progression in life can be a lot like progression in a video game and another specifically about depression and the surprising impact of talking about these issues online.
