Music & The Mind: Mental Health in the Entertainment Industry
Recent research has revealed that entertainment industry workers experience depression and other mental health issues at a rate up to five times higher than the general population.
Why is this so prevalent in our entertainment communities? And what can be done to improve mental health among performing artists, industry support workers, technicians and crew?
We heard from from Susan Cooper, GM of Entertainment Assist, the group behind the research and Joanna Cave, CEO of Support Act, a charity supporting musicians in tough times, on this. You can continue the conversation at the upcoming APRA AMCOS free event Music + The Mind happening in Marrickville on 24 May.
