HyperX and Rise Above the Disorder join hands to bare cost of mental health care

Published on:

Gaming technology giant, HyperX, has partnered with Rise Above the Disorder (RAD), a nonprofit organisation covering the cost of mental health care for people around the world. With the help from HyperX gaming ambassadors and partners, a PSA video was created to help elevate awareness for mental health care needs and support. HyperX will also host a HXCKED charity streaming event to support RAD, where the donated amount will help fund mental health care services for those in need.

“HyperX is honored to be partnering with Rise Above the Disorder on an awareness campaign during Mental Health Awareness Month. This past year has had an immense impact on mental health for many and through our ambassadors’ incredible stories and the essential resources provided by Rise Above the Disorder, we hope to be part of a long-term solution to the problems facing countless members of the HyperX gaming family and community,” said HyperX influencer marketing manager and head of health and wellness Dustin Illingworth.

 Several HyperX ambassadors lent their time to the cause, which includes content creators like Imane “Pokimane” Anys, professional athletes like Gordon Hayward, Aerial Powers and JuJu Smith-Schuster, and esports stars from Cloud9, XSET and Panda.

The PSA encourages individuals to take care of their physical and mental health, while also providing information on resources available through the RAD organization.

During the PSA, each of the sports, gaming and influencer professionals shared their personal stories and insight on how they have learned to cope with the stress of being in the public eye.

As part of Mental Health Awareness month, HyperX will host an online charity gaming event called HXCKED, featuring notable ambassadors and influencers including Powers, Cloud9 and Team Liquid members playing Call of Duty: Warzone and other games.

The event is scheduled for Friday, 21May and can be seen on HyperX Twitch Channel

During the HXCKED livestream, RAD will be offering the purchase of a RAD “ You are not alone” T-Shirt and for every T-Shirt sold during the livestream, RAD will be allocating an hour of therapy to someone in need.
