The likelihood of a mental health problem in the creative sector is three times that of the general population. 

The most common diagnosed disorders were anxiety (36%) and depression (32%). 

What is really worrying is that there are high proportions (60%) reported having had suicidal thoughts, 37% had made a plan for suicide and 16% of workers had made a suicide attempt in their lifetime. 

For an industry that talks a lot about workplace culture; isn’t time we started actually giving a fuck about our staff and their mental wellbeing? 

Start the conversation today; it could save a life!
