THE CHECKPOINT SERIES IS HERE!  

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your ongoing support, for cheering us on, and for being so patient.  

We are absolutely thrilled to announce the first episode is here!  

Introduction to Mental Health  

Join Dr Jennifer Hazel on an overview of the world of mental health and wellbeing. Learn what the definition of “mental health” really is, bust some myths about mental illness, and explore different types of therapy available.  

 

 

It runs at twenty minutes (the longest episode) and includes an overview of the themes explored in the show: tackling mental health issues using the power of video games. It features interviews with Bioshock’s Ken Levine, Naughty Dog’s Josh Scherr, NITV/Gizmodo’s Rae Johnston and many more inspiring individuals.  

The show is available to watch on YouTube, Steam, and the CheckPoint website, with episodes coming out on Mondays and Thursdays.
