You’ve seen the news: videogames can cause distress, depression and now a ‘disorder’ according to the World Health Organisation. Or do they? With the help of psychology and gaming professionals, the National Videogame Museum and Kurious Arts hope to gain an insight into how videogames might impact our mental health. 

A panel discussion as part of Sheffield's Festival Of Debate, this is the perfect chance for you to learn more about the Video Gaming Industry - what is being done within it to support Mental Health and is it enough? 

The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A.

About the Panel
The panel consists of key industry players, plus Christine Li, a PhD researcher who is currently investigating ways to integrate virtual reality and gamification in athletic training. From the newsroom to the lab, video games have always been a primary driver of her career ambitions. Having previously worked at IGN and CNET as a social media manager, Christine has unique insight into the weird, wonderful, and dark parts of video game culture and communities.
