In honor of National BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month (July), Logitech G and Streamlabs are joining forces once again to shine a spotlight on the importance of destigmatizing discussions around mental health in BIPOC communities. This year, we have planned a series of initiatives and events to raise awareness, promote education, and support charitable organizations supporting mental health in BIPOC communities.
Through Logitech’s Donor Advisory Fund (DAF) and a dedicated donation campaign via Streamlabs Charity, we will be helping make a positive impact by contributing to organizations that are actively working to uplift marginalized communities and improve the overall well-being of individuals from diverse backgrounds. Let's delve into the exciting details of everything you can expect from the Streamlabs and Logitech G family during the month of July.
Supporting Charitable Organizations
Logitech G and Streamlabs are committed to making a difference by donating to four remarkable organizations—the organizations benefiting from this campaign are:
WeXL: WeXL empowers diverse creators so that together they can build a more equitable world through compassion, creativity, and innovation. WeXL’s Boundless Youth Creators after-school program teaches kids healthy content creation and consumption habits.
YR Media: YR Media is a national network of young journalists and artists that collaborate with peers around the country and top media professionals to create content that matters, such as pieces focusing on politics, identity, and rising artists.
Black Girls Smile: Black Girls Smile is a nonprofit organization that prioritizes the mental health and well-being of young Black girls and women, striving to create a supportive and nurturing community.
Asian Mental Health Collective: Asian Mental Health Collective (AMHC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting mental well-being for AAPI individuals by providing access to resources and destigmatizing mental health within the Asian community.
Promoting Mental Health Support
Recognizing the significance of mental health, Logitech G has partnered with Modern Health to provide complimentary mental health support for gamers and creators. Specialized therapists and coaches will lead listen-and-learn circles, offering valuable insights and guidance on important mental health topics. These circles aim to promote education and support for various issues, including promoting belonging, meeting mental health needs within relationships, coping with stress and anxiety during uncertain times, and addressing LGBTQIA+ concerns.
"Community of Care" Giveaway
With the "Community of Care" giveaway, community members have the opportunity to nominate individuals who have made a positive impact. The chosen nominees will receive a gear upgrade from Logitech G and Streamlabs. Be sure to pop into all #Creators4BIPOC live streams to learn more about these amazing giveaways.
