Awareness didn't stop at developing Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

Ninja Theory, the development team behind Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, has announced another collaboration with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust's Recovery College East to establish a new scholarship to support mental health education.

The program, titled Senua's Scholarship, will be established and funded by Ninja Theory in a partnership with the Head to Toe charity in recognition of World Mental Health Day. Each year, a student will be trained with the organization to become a mental health tutor. From there, they'll be able to help those diagnosed with mental illnesses to establish a "life beyond diagnosis."



The student receiving the scholarship will also be presented with assistance and opportunities to establish a career in the mental health field.

Ninja Theory has been a major gaming proponent in mental health awareness during the entire production of Hellblade. The development team worked with Recovery College East at the time to ensure that they had a fair an accurate representation of mental illness for the game's main character, Senua.

I might have to buy the game again, just to support them more.
