In this episode of the Sidcourse, we take a look at mental health, depression and how games and gaming can or could help for those suffering.
Depression is something that affects an alarming number of people and it’s effects can lead to extreme issues, including suicide. Whatever your opinions on the matter, the loss of human life is always a tragedy regardless of quantity. And it’s incredibly scary that something as silent as our minds can lead us through a downward spiral.
Can video games help in some capacity? Using controlled mechanics, narratives and shared experiences, is the power of immersion able to engage someone to get help and make a difference?
