Take This

is creating the AFK Room Program
Select a membership level
Bard Level
per month

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. 

Warrior Level
per month

 Warriors' strength is brought to bear on the front lines of the fight against stigma, raising their shields in defense of those who need it most. At this level, you are helping one person per year use the AFK Room. You'll also have access to our Patreon feed as described above. 

Alchemist Level
per month

 Though their ultimate goal is to turn lead into gold, along the way alchemists create more practical potions that soothe the mind and heal the soul. At this level, you are helping three people per year use the AFK Room. 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.

About Take This

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.
