Throughout August, the Overwatch Community for Mental Health is hosting an Overwatch Charity Tournament benefiting the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation in coordination with the Overguard and the OXC (Overwatch Xbox Community) and with support from Matcherino, Battlefy, and the Los Angeles Gladiators (who graciously submitted signed jerseys for the prize pool). Interested players must register by donating at minimum $5 to the BBRF, either as teams (in coordination with the OCMH’s leadership) or as free agents, and will then compete in professionally streamed and casted matches on Twitch for a chance at the donated prizes. XB1 registration is closed at this time, but PC registration is up until August 4th, and PS4 until August 18th.

The Brain and Behavior Research Foundation funds cutting-edge research surrounding mental health, its causes, and its solutions. With mental health being such a relevant component of gaming culture, the Overwatch Community for Mental Health seeks to remove stigmas while fighting for progress in mental health discourse. This tournament is a productive step towards that goal and all volunteers, partners, and participants are equally appreciated in their contribution.
