FaZe co-owner and content creator Nordan ‘Rain’ Shat has checked himself into a mental health facility, as stated in an alarming Tweet he posted on December 20.
Rain alerted his followers that he had been hospitalized in a post about “suicidal thoughts,” likewise admitting that he was on his way to a mental health institution.
“Ended up in the hospital again and on my way to a psych ward,” Rain wrote. “Those of you dealing with suicidal thoughts and are contemplating it, please don’t do it. You don’t understand the impact it has on people. We all have our time anyways, let’s just live our lives out.”

Rain’s Tweet was met with overwhelming support from his teammates, friends, and followers alike, with the likes of retired CoD pro Doug ‘Censor’ Martin and popular YouTuber ‘Mini Ladd’ expressing their love and sympathies to the FaZe mainstay.
“Much love man, we’re here for you,” Ladd wrote.
This is not Rain’s first brush with mental health, either; the YouTuber has been open about his struggles with depression in the past, admitting that he had a major mental breakdown in April of 2018 that prompted him to check himself into a mental health facility.
“Some shit happened, I'm not going to lie,” Rain explained in a video in July 2018. “Self-harm shit. Ended up in a hospital for a few days, and then I ended up in a psych ward.”
While both Rain and the official FaZe Clan Twitter have yet to provide concrete updates as to his condition, fans are continuing to showcase their support as he receives treatment in private.
