What do Music Support Charity do?
This fantastic organisation works every day to ensure that nobody in the fitness industry has to battle mental illness or addiction issues alone, and they constantly develop and expand their facilities so training, education and workshops can be held related to the matter to help an earlier intervention. They provide a wide range of services including a non-judgemental helpline where you will be able to get in touch with a member of their dedicated team who is familiar with the issues the music industry can bring upon an individual. These professionals are here to help you, and more importantly listen and understand you so your chosen well being journey can be sustainable.
This charity also helps musicians in the UK via a New and easy to navigate app called Thrive which has over 100 hours of tools and content which can be utilised to aid the prevention and management of mental health issues. As this app helps you look after your mental health on a daily basis, it has been designed so it can be used as a preventative tool as well as a tool for those who need immediate help. They also have addiction and recovery workshops as well as crisis support available so no matter which stage of your wellbeing journey you are at, you can find exactly the help you need.
Another fantastic service the brand offers is Safe Hubs at music festivals across the UK so artists and backstage colleagues can escape and talk to professionals in a confidential and safe environment. Individuals are able to ask for advice for themselves, colleagues, friends, family members and more leaving them well equipped for anything that may arise.
