Guild Wars 2 offers free promotional items as part of Suicide Prevention Month

Are you, like... doing all right?

September is Suicide Prevention Month, which is not really an event that you celebrate in the conventional sense. It’s an event worthy of note, however, and Guild Wars 2 is tying that in with “Seize the Awkward” as a chance to remind everyone to have important conversations with your friends about mental health. To help serve as a reminder, the game is also offering free promotional items to players in the form of a t-shirt cosmetic item and a potion for your novelty wardrobe.

Both items can be nabbed for free off of the gem store through September 29th, so if you haven’t already gotten them, now’s the time. And, of course, if you haven’t already checked on the well-being of your friends, now is also the time for that. Mental health is an ongoing issue for many people and you may not immediately see the people who are struggling. Be kind, be aware, and seize the awkwardness of the conversation. (Oh, that’s where the name comes from.)

I was curious about what these were when I claimed them. After a google search, I donned the outfit on my character and ran around Tyria wearing it. It’s so awesome they did this.

The fact a MMO is showing awareness for yellow september is remarkable.

They did this last year too, same outfit as last year but hey I’m not judging; I bet this month is more relevant this year then last year (lots of Psych 1 to 1s coming through our hospital, unfortunately they shut down our Psychiatric wing so these people will eventually be shipped out roughly 100 miles aka 45 kilometres from where they live to wind up in a mental hospital that’s still open).
