It is important that we all choose causes to support and try and make the world a better place. In this website I will talk about why I support HealthyGamerGG organization and what I think they are doing right.
Providing Practical Solutions to Mental Health Problems
The pandemic had negative effects on the mental health of 1 in 5 adults in the US. This shows we are in a mental health crisis in society and that we need to do something about it. Dr. Alok Kanojia addressed this problem with Healtygamergg. He started Healthygamergg when he realized that there was a huge mental health crisis among gamers. He posted an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit that ended up on the front page and flooded with responses. At this point he realized that he needed an effective way to help gamers. He started live streaming on Twitch and is now a huge Twitch streamer with thousands of people watching his streams multiple times a week. He has had a huge positive effect on gamers and other young people in the digital age.
Importance of Healthygamergg & Why You Should Support Healthygamergg
In a time where mental health is largely going south among the population, we quickly needed a solution. Healthygamer was able to offer a unique one by providing help to young people online to reach and help more people. Their main focus is on holistic approaches to mental health with things like meditation (real meditation, not mindfulness) and Ayurveda. They also offer four paid courses for mental that go over, Anxiety, Depression, Meditation, and ADHD. I have bought the meditation course and would highly recommend it. All the material of the courses is available for free on their streams, but it is made much more comprehensive in the guide.
Why you Should Support Healthygamergg
It is important that we all take steps to make an impact on society, in small or large ways. Getting behind organizations that our working towards a cause that we support is a very effective way to do that. You can watch their twitch streams here. His latest stream was titled “How Depression Ruins Your Life”. In this stream he goes over a couple of posts from his subreddit where people post about mental health problems that they have in the hope of him answering or other people in the community answering (or just to get it out). He also educates about the medical side of depression.
The Importance of Community
It is important to have a strong community and support system during these times or extreme anxiety and uncertainty. Healthygamergg has a active and helpful community on Discord that has many different live virtual events and challenges happening all the time. Right now they are hosting a challenge called Swap It, where the goal is to swap negative technology habits for better alternatives.
