Free Mental Health Support Videos Helping the Australian Entertainment Industry

Free mental health support videos have been specifically produced by Entertainment Assist to support members of the entertainment industry during the COVID-19 crisis.

The health and wellbeing webinars are an expansion of the Entertainment Assist mental health training programs and information sessions provided in workplaces and institutions prior to the current crisis.

GOOD MENTAL HEALTH MEANS BEING ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN LIFE, BEING CONFIDENT AND HAVING SELF-ESTEEM.

Good mental health means we can enjoy being around others and our environment, fully explore our skills and creativity.

While the arts and entertainment sector brings an enormous amount of joy to Australians, recent research has identified that performers, technicians and other support workers experience an unusually high incidence of depression, anxiety and other aspects of mental distress that are also leading to high rates of suicide.

Entertainment Assist is dedicated to raising awareness about mental health in the Australian entertainment industry by commissioning research, for workplace and educational transformation and identifying support pathways for those in distress.

If you or someone you know needs mental health support head to Entertainment Assist, it’s okay to reach out and ask for help.
