MusicHelps Wellbeing Service Offers Lifeline to Wider Arts Community

From Standing Room Only, 1:50 pm on 29 March 2020

Artists and performers who're struggling emotionally during COVID-19 now have access to a counselling service that up until now has been focused on helping our music industry. MusicHelps is extending its services to the broader arts community because of the unprecedented impact that COVID-19 has had on the performing arts.

The MusicHelps Wellbeing Service is a FREE 24/7 online, on the phone (tollfree 0508MUSICHELP), and in-person counselling service. People who work in the Arts Community, including comedians, actors, technicians, festival staff and crew, venue staff, and more people in the arts industry who have had their livelihoods affected, can now access the MusicHelps Wellbeing Service.

Information regarding COVID-19 related cancellations, postponements, and other changes can be found in a specific section on the MusicHelps website Lynn talks to Peter Dickens, the General Manager of MusicHelps.
