The Culture Shift Help Desk
The Culture Shift Help Desk is a consultation service for those in the games industry and in gaming communities who are trying to bring a liberatory and transformative way of thinking towards addressing harm, abuse, and oppression in their spaces.
We can help you think through your situation, project, or efforts using a trauma-informed, survivor-centered lens that approaches accountability in a way that seeks to foster behavior change, repair and healing, and the transformation of the circumstances that allowed the harm, abuse, and oppression to happen.
Has abuse, assault, or harmful behavior been more openly revealed at your workplace or in your community? Has your studio or organization been called out for perpetuating oppression? Is a history of predatory or hostile behavior has haunted your workplace or community, continuing to create conflict and mistrust years later? Are you are wanting to proactively diminish the conditions for harmful and oppressive patterns at your workplace?

What does an appointment look like?
Once you fill out the form above, our team will review it and reach back out to you to set up an appointment. The appointment will be 30-60 minutes long. This is not a crisis hotline, and appointments may not be immediately available. You may schedule multiple appointments to check-in with further questions and updates as things develop.
If you need emotional support more quickly, and you are in the USA, you can text SUPPORT to 23368 to connect to the Games and Online Harassment Hotline.
How much does it cost?
The CSP Help Desk is free.
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit and appreciate any donations you can provide to help us keep doing this work. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
What CAN’T we help with?
We do not offer mediation, process facilitation, investigation, or reporting.
