Mental Health

UK Music works with charities to help people in the music industry facing mental health challenges.

UK Music is committed to working with charities and our members to help people with mental health problems.

Around one in four workers are affected by conditions like depression, anxiety and stress every year. It is vital they get the support they need.

No one should have to suffer alone and we aim to help people find the help, advice and support they need to deal with mental health issues.

Music Support, which works closely with the BPI, has a 24/7 helpline that is open to anybody in the industry who might be struggling with addictions or mental health issues and needs help.

It does not give advice or offer clinical services, but it does offer signposting to certified and accredited professionals in the fields of addiction and mental health: therapists, psychiatrists and treatment facilities.

Help Musicians supports music industry professionals with mental health and a range of other problems.

In October, UK Music announced our plan to sign up to the Time to Change Employer Pledge and join the campaign to transform how we think about mental health.

We hope firms across the music industry who have not yet signed up to the idea will join us and the 500+ employers who are already backing the pledge.

You can find out more about the Time to Change Employer Pledge here.

The Music Managers Forum (MMF) produced a mental health guide which is available here.

The Skills Network is also running a nationwide project to raise awareness of metal health. You can find out more here.
