Recall and Restore

By Matthew Boughen

Riot Games is joining with headspace and Le Va for ‘Recall and Restore’

Each year, one in four young people will experience a mental health issue. Starting on Monday 11 March and culminating in Round 9 of the OPL (Friday 15 and Sat 16 March at 4pm AEDT) ‘Recall and Restore’ will focus on mental health and wellbeing for the League of Legends OCE community.

League of Legends players in Oceania rated mental health as their number one value, outside of the game. With ‘Recall and Restore’ Riot will support players, friends and family with resources, tips and information on how to maintain a healthy headspace. These will be introduced during ‘Recall and Restore’ and hosted at learnwithleague.com.

Games are an integral part of human behaviour. It is normal and healthy for young people to engage in play as a part of their daily lives, including playing games online. Online communities are providing more opportunities to feel socially connected and gaming can help young people feel a sense of belonging. At healthy levels, gaming can increase self-esteem and social acceptance. It can also provide an opportunity for a structured daily routine and can be a fun and relaxing activity. However, any behaviour, when taken to extreme, can have a negative impact on a young person’s everyday life.  

We want players to feel empowered to share how they’re feeling and to know where to turn for support. Keep your eye on leagueoflegends.com as we release tips, resources and information in collaboration with headspace and Le Va throughout the week and get involved in the conversation using #IAMOPL.
