Hot Press - - 100 Voices On Mental Health -

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.
