I’m so glad that mental health is becoming more talked about in the music sphere, but I think it’s important that we take a step beyond talking about it. We need to look at the everyday lives of people working in the industry and find practical ways to make it a healthier environment. I’d also like to see more awareness of how to help someone else struggling with their mental health. It feels like most of the conversation is centred around the person who is unwell taking action, but sometimes people are too unwell to be able to do that. I know I was. I think it’s all of our responsibility to try and recognise warning signs, and do what we can to help, whether that’s giving someone a lift to their first therapy session, or sitting with them in A&E.
