It’s estimated that 1-in-4 people in the US will receive a mental health diagnosis in their lifetime, but people are less willing to seek help when they think they’ll be judged poorly by a healthcare provider. “Will they get me?” “Do they play RPGs?” “Do they think D&D is a cult?” Come join Take This Project and our panelists of mental health professionals, and hear how they incorporate geek and gamer culture in their clinical work to make it easier for other gamers to get the help they seek.
