eUnited, a top North American esports organization is excited to announce a new partnership with Rise Above The Disorder, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to removing the two greatest barriers to mental health care: access and affordability.
Mental illness is rampant in today's world:
- Nearly 1 in 5 American adults will have a diagnosable mental health condition in any given year
- Over 51 million US adults are currently living with mental illness - over 20% of all adults
- Half of all mental disorders begin by age 14, and three quarters by age 24
eUnited is committed to the health and safety of it’s players and staff. Thanks to this partnership with RAD, eUnited is able to offer unabridged access to mental health professionals for its entire organization - to ensure that their mental health issues are tackled head on and in a timely manner, without cost being a concern to the party needing help.
eUnited’s General Manager, Matthew Potthoff, added the following about working with RAD:
"I'm very excited to work with RAD. It's important to me knowing that my players and staff at eUnited have access to Mental Health care. I'm hoping that through this strategic partnership, we can not only help our players and staff at eUnited, but raise awareness for Mental Health in the gaming community and encourage other individuals to seek help and know it's okay to do so. The RAD team has been exceptional to work with thus far, they really care about their program. I can't wait to see what the future holds with our partnership.
Additionally, eUnited will use its platform to educate the gaming community on breaking the stigma of mental health conditions, by leveraging its players and content to send home the message of mental health awareness. eUnited will also help fundraise for RAD, aiming to open up access to mental health care for everyone.
RAD’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Joanathan Miller, said:
“Our mission has always been to make mental health services both accessible and affordable to those in need. With gaming at the heart of everything we do, it is essential for RAD to partner with organizations and individuals that share our passion, and recognize the importance of mental health in our industry. We are pleased to join eUnited in their effort to address mental health, and we look forward to the positive impact this partnership will have on so many lives."
Together, we can help to build a better future - and it starts with recognizing the importance of mental health. To learn more about RAD, check out their website: https://www.youarerad.org/
