Take This AFK Rooms are mental health first aid for convention attendees and staff worldwide.

Since 2014, Take This has been sending our volunteers and staff to conventions worldwide. Our trained volunteers and staff create quiet, welcoming spaces for people dealing with mental health issues and those who need a break from the show, and can help guide people in distress to the help they need.

Between training, insuring, flying, and lodging our staff, Take This spends over $70,000 each year to help thousands of people dealing with mental health issues at conventions all over the world.

Everyone who supports Take This in any way, large or small, is part of a growing movement of people who know that there is no shame in coping with mental health issues, that reaching out for help is a sign of great bravery, and that this industry and this hobby are better when we’re all here to support one another.

The joy that the bard’s music brings is felt by all, inspiring others to rally in support of mental health awareness. You will have access to our Patreon feed where we will post additional photos, convention recaps, first looks at new Donation Level Loot items to be available at conventions, and when possible, videos and audio of our panels! We offer our sincere thanks and gratitude for helping us continue the AFK Room Program.

You'll also have access to our Patreon feed as described above AND we’ll add your name to a special Thank You page on our website.
