It's the players who make today's online gaming worthwhile. We strive to create a community of players that are cooperative, willing to enlighten others, and build an environment that gives players a reason to come back.
Player 2 is a side project of Improved Gaming focused on raising mental health awareness for depression, thoughts of self harm, and suicide. We are NOT licensed counselors, we are just a group of people who play together. Player 2 is building an environment where players know they will always be heard and apart of something. It’s to provide resources and support for those players struggling or just wanting a break from what's getting to them.
We currently utilize our Discord along with some game servers we host to bring players together. By doing this we find groups of players getting to know one another personally and finding similar interests. It's this community and their friendships that allow them to cope and process some of those darker things in their life.
Donations are used to cover web hosting and purchasing small things for giveaways; games, gift cards and more. All the items used for the community giveaways. For some this is just a group that they hang out with, and for others it might be resource they needed at a bad time in their life.
