Crowds, schedules, the immediacy of once-a-year events and other stressors common at conventions and expos can be triggers for many emotional issues, especially anxiety and depression.
The AFK Room is a quiet space for people who are looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of a major convention and regain their calm. The AFK Room is staffed with volunteers and clinicians who can answer questions and offer support for people who need time away from the busy show floor. MomoCon is happy to help Take This provide this service to all attendees who need aid, to take serious and meaningful steps to help those attendees who may face any number of challenges including anxiety, social discomfort, harassment, dysphoria-related issues, and much more.
More than a quiet room, the Take This AFK Room is a safe space for people who need it, staffed with volunteers and clinicians who can answer questions and offer support for people who are stressed out. Some visitors simply need a break from the excitement and stimulation of a large event. Others seek conversation about mental health related issues. Still others check in to support Take This and their mission.
