Take This seeks to inform the gaming community about mental health issues, to provide education about mental disorders and mental illness prevention, and to reduce the stigma of mental illness. Together, we’ve created the Shield of Hope (formerly Box of Hope). A handcrafted Hope Shield, which functions as a worry stone and a reminder that we are not alone. Made from our beloved Core 16 woods, and with one in fifty featuring a unique inlay, the Shield of Hope is a way to show support and let a loved one know it’s OK to ask for help. You can read more about the origins here. If you or someone you know is in crisis and in need of immediate intervention, please visit the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or call 1-800-273-8255.
