Healthy Gamer has received overwhelming support from health professionals from around the world. In fact, the vast majority of early users for the parenting resources were mental health professionals themselves, which speaks to the tangible benefits of the approach. Many Healthy Gamer clients joined based on a recommendation from their own therapist to fill a gap psychopharm or talk therapy couldn’t.
Yes. We meet with every guest in advance and clearly explain the goal of the stream and distinctions between the conversation that takes place and therapy.
The guest partners with Dr. K or any other expert they will be streaming with and aligns on the topics, approach and goal of the stream.
Absolutely. Healthy Gamer’s most valuable asset in our community and human-first approach. We are grateful to each guest for helping reduce stigma and open a dialogue about mental health, and we encourage their focus on mental health to continue through any of our existing resources, or by referrals to other mental health services as appropriate.
We also offer Creator Coaching if a stream guest wants to continue their mental health journey with a Healthy Gamer Coach. Free for Twitch Partners
Our goal and priority is the mental health of our community. Healthy Gamer regularly recommends therapy to our community if and/or when it is appropriate or to supplement our content and coaching programs with additional resources.
Coaching, unlike therapy, is not a clinical practice designed to diagnose clients with mental health issues. Healthy Gamer Coaching is suitable for you if you do not have a clinical illness and want to work on the obstacles that are preventing you from building the life you want. If you are unsure about whether you have a clinical illness, then we recommend getting evaluated by a licensed mental health professional in an area.
HG is committed to affordable, inclusive, accessible support. Content on Twitch and YouTube is always free, and you can find extensive resources here. Because the best coaching outcomes are with paid coaches (not volunteers) who participate in extensive skills development, ongoing case review, and advanced education with professionals, we pay coaches competitive market wages while charging low session rates.
HG is committed to building upon the body of knowledge in the field of mental health. Where there is scientific evidence, we review it and apply it to create the strongest support resources possible. Where we rely on our own experiences, our own data, or explore un-evidenced ideas, we always state that we are doing so. The beauty of HG’s core IP is that we are multi-disciplinary and proud to draw upon multiple areas of understanding the brain, mind, and self.
