In a supportive environment, hear about gaming industry professionals talk about their struggles and their treatments as they cope with depression and anxiety, but still make products. This seminar is more a conversation between people who are struggling with mental illness (and are now in various stages of treatment), yet don't let their illness(es) define them or stop them from producing the material they love. Come hang out with us and let's talk openly about how not to let the monsters win while we make awesome games.
