This weekend is TwitchCon, and Take This Org is sponsoring a very important panel discussion, "It's Dangerous to Go Alone: Mental Health in Streaming," today at 10:30 a.m. Pacific (1:30 Eastern). You can watch live, or access the hour-long video after the fact. (I'll post a link in a few days.)
Twitch, an online community "where millions of people and thousands of interests collide in a beautiful explosion of video games, pop culture, and conversation," was a place where Rader felt like he could express himself, but still he struggled with his mental health even as he connected with people and shared his talents and creativity there. I'm encouraged to see Take This and Twitch advocating for and working toward mental wellness for gamers.
