I’m delighted to say I was invited to talk to a wargaming site about the mental health benefits of classic wargaming. No, this is not video war stuff. This is something far different, closer to the sort of things the military do when they wish to discuss tactics and so on, and they build models to work with. As such it can have surprising mental health benefits.
Here’s the link: http://wargamingrecon.com/wr245
The site is run by a former student of mine, Jonathan Reinhart, and he has spoken openly and with great courage about his own mental health issues, as well as how his hobby has been beneficial to him.
If you have a moment, listen in.
