We’re honored to partner with Take This again this year to raise funds and encourage important conversations this Mental Health Awareness Month!
Take This is a 501(c)(3) non-profit mental health organization providing comprehensive resources and support that is tailored for the unique needs of the game development community and embraces the diverse cultures and issues of the game community.
We’ll be raising funds for their incredible programming and services, which provide direct aid to the mental wellness of our communities. As part of our personal commitment to this cause and to our community, Team Salvato will be matching your donations during this campaign.
We’ve also partnered with some of our amazing artists and partners to add fun, campaign-exclusive incentives to encourage and thank everyone who donates.

This is a limited-time pre-order that will close at the end of the month and be shipped in mid-June.
As a new expansion to our campaign this year, we’ve decided to create intentional space for members of our collective gaming community to share their own experiences with mental health.
These interviews cover a wide variety of perspectives, including those of a gamer, a streamer, a developer, and a mental health professional in the gaming industry. We hope that through the sharing of these varied experiences, we will continue to learn, share, and grow together.
