Music Managers Guide to Mental Health

In collaboration with the Music Manager’s Forum we have compiled this very useful guide to mental health specifically from the point of view of the music industry – written by people within the music industry in consultation with outside clinical experts.

We want to spread awareness of our charity and of our services to everybody in the music industry, so that nobody feels as though they have to suffer alone. You can help us with this mission by downloading our poster or logo and displaying it around your office, venue, event or anywhere else.
