The following is a short video I made while thinking about how many people I know uses video games as an escape. For many, life can feel like a trap. They may use video games as a way to avoid what they're going through. Check on those in your life. They may be going through a quiet crisis that they can't speak of with anyone. You never know what simply asking someone if they are okay could mean to someone who feels completely alone.
If you're in the midst of a crisis, help is available. You're not alone. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1(800) 273-8255.
