In response to several players reaching out to it regarding various mental health issues, the Counter-Strike Professional Players Association (CSPPA) has announced plans to liaise with teams, tournament organizers and other stakeholders on how to combat the growing problem.
In its post, CSPPA mentioned quite a few mental health issues that have been reported by players, such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. In the coming weeks the organization intends to reach out to key members of the CS:GO community to determine ways of preventing these issues from manifesting and helping those already suffering from them to recover.
Although CSPPA has made it a priority, the growing number of players suffering from mental health issues has brought reason for concern and the need for new strategies and initiatives. All new initiatives will need to be approved by the CSPPA board before being added to the existing programs which includes a mental health hotline, a study being conducted by two leading universities, advisory services and group meetings.
CSPPA will engage with all 296 member organizations and their respective players to acquire feedback on the success of its initiatives.
