Volunteer Week: Game Leads
What is a Game Lead?
Gaming is at the heart of Stack Up and our community. Part of promoting mental health through gaming is playing games with friends. Enter: Game Leads who volunteer their time hosting game nights every week in our Discord server.
A Thank You for our Game Leads,
Game Night Volunteers:
Our Overwatch Program is an amazing program that offers immediate support to those who have reached or are nearing a point of crisis. It is a deeply emotional responsibility held by those volunteers and demands quite a bit. As critical as that work is, part of ensuring good mental health is welcoming all and nurturing a sense of togetherness through our shared love of gaming.
While our StOP program is about helping those during a point of crisis, I consider our Game Nights to be about helping our community before and after such a point. It is because of the environment you have helped create that people feel comfortable in reaching out for help when needed.
To all who have selflessly donated their time - past and present - we want to thank you deeply. Whether it's a fun night of jump scares in Phasmophobia or a run in World of Warcraft, our game nights help build that sense of community and build that sense of camaraderie that many people need.
