Media reported that the e-competition team Cloud9 had just reached a partnership with Kaiser Permanente, a healthcare company, to draw attention to mental health issues. Under the plan, Cloud9 will provide mental health training for tv campaigners, coaches, and other employees, broadcast a series of Twitch programs that help raise public awareness, and educate community moderators to promote positive discussions on mental health topics.

The multi-year plan is known as The Presence of Mind. Cloud9’s Hero League team will be trained first, and the rest will follow.
Clearly, Jack Etienne, founder and chief executive of Cloud9 and one of the staunch supporters of the League of Heroes Champions League (LCS), is well aware of the pressures on his players.
With the current team in the off-season at the turn of spring and summer, Cloud9 hopes that everyone, including managers and coaches, will be able to conduct targeted mental health training in batches before the start of the new season.
