Hello beautiful community! First off, if you haven't already, please check out @RoosterSammii's excellent post on " Stress, Anxiety & Depression in the Gaming Community ". Please share it also if you know someone who you think might benefit from having a read. :)


As you know, this group is paired with leading cyberbullying charity Cybersmile. I'm delighted to announce that they have a brand new whole section of their website dedicated to tackling abuse in the gaming community and helping those affected.


Abuse in gaming has always been a huge problem. But everyone has the right to a positive experience while gaming! Cybersmile, with help from Intel have created the Gaming Help Centre to support those who have experienced abuse or negativity while online gaming.

Advice ranges from practical coping mechanisms when gaming to gaming terminology to help you achieve a more positive online gaming experience.



They also have a great section where they get advice from leading gaming industry professionals(please excuse their typo! :P) including Bioware's Leading Editor. If you scroll down a little you'll even see the blog this group wrote for them!



Lastly, if you have any great advice or ideas on how to tackle abuse in gaming, why not comment below to help you fellow community members or email Cybersmile at: info@cybersmile.org


I hope this helps, and remember to share this with anyone you think it might help! <3
