In the last couple of years, awareness of mental health has increased. However, there’s still lots of work to do. In the workplace, mental health illnesses are still not recognized in the same way as physical illnesses and talking about it is still difficult for many people. With this game jam, we want to open up the conversation by building some creative games around this important topic. We need your help!
