Sector initiatives include:

  • The Support Act Wellbeing Helpline, a free, confidential phone counselling service, available 24/7 to anyone who works in the performing arts who is concerned about their mental health and wellbeing.
  • Tailored, accredited Mental Health First Aid is delivered in order to help address barriers to help-seeking and improve mental health literacy. The Arts Wellbeing Collective is exploring opportunities for developing a peer support network, promoting those who have successfully completed Mental Health First Aid.
