GOOD MENTAL HEALTH MEANS BEING ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN LIFE, BEING CONFIDENT AND HAVING SELF-ESTEEM.
With good mental health we can enjoy being around other people and our environment, fully explore our skills and creativity. Good mental health supports resilience and relationships.
While the arts and entertainment sector brings an enormous amount of joy to Australians, recent research has identified that performers, technicians and other support workers experience an unusually high incidence of depression, anxiety and other aspects of mental distress that are also leading to high rates of suicide.
Entertainment Assist is dedicated to raising awareness about mental health in the Australian entertainment industry by commissioning research, advocating for workplace and educational transformation and identifying support pathways for those in distress.
