“Can games help beat depression? Danny explores the link between video games and dealing with mental health issues.”
This video discusses experiences of depression, and their relation to video games – how they helped and how depression can influence the development process. Featuring game personalities and developers alike, talking openly, honestly and often quite frankly about their personal stories, it is a must watch for anyone going through the same thing and seeking to feel like they are not alone.
You can view the video on the GameSpot YouTube Channel.

I'm a psychiatry doctor and passionate gamer. I run a resource called prescriptionpixel.com - an interface between video games and mental health.
This is a space for gamers to safely share their feelings, access personalised resources, and seek help without judgement or stigma.
