A brand new support programme has been released for people working in the music industry. Music minds matter is a mental health support line specifically targeting not only artists but other members of the music industry. The campaign was launched by help musicians UK, an organisation which focuses on supporting musicians young and old. HMUK was established in 1921 and has been helping people with their careers in the music industry ever since.
The music industry is full of talented and amazing people but the environment can be very intense. The stress and pressure for artists can often be too much for them to deal with alone. Music minds matter researched the number of people experiencing mental health problems within the music industry. It stated around 71.1% experienced panic attacks and/or anxiety problems and a further 65.8% experienced depression. Music minds matter is an extremely useful and unique tool in battling mental health within the music industry.
The line is free to call and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
