About Take This
Our mission is to decrease the stigma, and increase the support for, mental health in the game enthusiast community and inside the game industry. Our vision is a game community that welcomes and supports people experiencing mental health challenges, and that recognizes the humanity and mental health of game creators.
The foundation of all of our work is the principle that hope is healing in the journey to mental wellness. Furthermore,
- We normalize mental health challenges and recognize and honor intersectional experiences,
- We approach change and mental wellness broadly, from empowering individuals to enacting systemic change focused on leadership and cultural norms and practices,
- We foster healthy, inclusive community by focusing on collaboration and partnership, and
- We take an evidence-based approach to our mental health content and programming
Take This provides resources, training, and support for individuals and companies that help the gaming community improve its mental well-being and resilience. The organization addresses the underlying conditions that can create and perpetuate mental health challenges: stigma, harmful studio culture, harassment and toxicity, lack of diversity and accessibility, and problematic game and community design.
This position supports the Clinical Director on an as-needed basis in customizing the organization’s mental health workshop and training materials and facilitating and leading virtual workshops for game industry professionals, studios, and companies. Consultants may also be invited to use relevant new material to create Mental Health Minutes and articles for the website. This is a remote contract position with flexible and very part-time hours that will vary month-to-month. As Take This’ work continues to expand, this position may lead to other opportunities within the organization.
What we are looking for
The ideal candidate will have either a clinical or research qualification in psychology. Experience with curriculum or workshop design expertise and delivery is highly desirable.
Take This is an equal opportunity employer. Our team and our services are made stronger with the inclusion of people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives, so we especially encourage folks from marginalized backgrounds to apply. We maintain an open and welcoming work environment designed with flexibility, mutual respect, and shared humanity as its principles.
The development of new, 1-hour workshops will be compensated at a flat rate of $2,500. Workshop contractors will be paid at $150/hr for delivery and creation of resources for the website.
