Dr K and Healthy Gamer GG – Dr K on faculty at Harvard in Psychiatry. His focus is the gamer world. He provides really rich mental health information. I especially love how he brings in eastern medicine into his work. I’ve personally learned a lot about meditation watching his videos on Youtube. Click here for his meditation playlist.
