Where to get help for mental health as a musician, manager, label and tour crew

There is a very valuable helpline offering support to those struggling with their mental health in the music industry. 

As we have sadly been reminded a few times in recent years, mental health can be a serious issue for people involved in the music industry. There a lot of pressures involved in being an artist, manager, label-runner and the various other roles in music.

A helpline is available from UK charity Help Musicians UK that offers advice for musicians and other music industry cohorts. Launched as part of their Music Minds Matter campaign in 2017 the helpline was inspired by the death of Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park who took his own life.

The helpline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 0808 802 8008 and is free of charge. You can also send an email at MMM@helpmusicians.org.uk. 
Don’t be afraid to reach out.
