NT - Music and the Mind: a panel on mental health

Recent research has shown that there’s a high incidence of depression and anxiety among musicians. With low pay, unreliable work, bullying, stress and other factors all playing a part, keeping your head in check can often be a huge challenge – as can finding support when you need it the most.

Recent research has shown that there’s a high incidence of depression and anxiety among musicians. With low pay, unreliable work, bullying, stress and other factors all playing a part, keeping your head in check can often be a huge challenge – as can finding support when you need it the most.

To open up discussion about mental health, we’re bringing together a few people for a frank chat about maintaining a healthy – and creative – mind. 

Led by Sandra Thibodeaux, the panel will feature Joanna Cave (Support Act), psychologist Henry Kwiatkowski (EASA Darwin), music manager Mark Grose and artist Liam Devine. They’ll look at how we can identify mental illness and the steps we can take to support ourselves and others.
