North American esports organization eUnited announced a strategic partnership Wednesday with mental health advocacy group Rise Above The Disorder. Rise Above The Disorder is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to removing the barriers to mental health care access and affordability.
Through this new partnership, eUnited will be able to offer “unabridged access” to mental health professionals for its entire organization, the company said in an announcement. In addition to providing mental health care to its players and staff, eUnited plans to help raise awareness on mental health issues by educating its audience. It has also committed to raising funds for the charity with future activities.
eUnited fields teams in several esports including Rocket League, Rainbow Six Siege, Smite, and Super Smash Bros.
In November, eUnited backed out of a merger agreement signed in June that would have seen it combine its business with the Toronto Stock Exchange Venture Exchange (TSXV)-listed Backstageplay, resulting in a reverse takeover and the new company being listed on the TSXV.
