WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH

Life alone on the road, long periods of isolation, severe self-doubt, inconsistent income, the grimy self-aggrandising social media echo chamber: artists face many volatile factors and influences that can cause mental unrest, anxiety and depression. In the last few years the industry has progressed positively and more artists feel they are able to talk publicly about their mental health. But we still have a long way to go in terms of how we address the topic, how we understand mental health and how we can provide support for artists who do suffer mental health issues.
