World Mental Health Day

This year’s World Mental Health Day theme is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’ and so our subject Wednesday is ‘WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THINGS GO WRONG’. Most of us who work in live music & events are freelance & there’s rarely much support when the wheels fall off. Whatever your reason for having to take time out or step back, whether that’s mental, physical, emotional or the big life stuff - join us to talk about it & shine a light on the stigma ⭐ The BACK LOUNGE is a peer support group who meet weekly on zoom, you can drop in as you please any week, camera on or off, talk or listen. In an industry that can make you feel isolated, there are the most AMAZING people out there just like you. You just need the guts to connect. Wednesday 13th October 6pm BST London ❤

How can we make it stick and is there a dark side to all this we need to be mindful of? We’re joined this week by special guests Malle Kaas and Erin Lynch from WILM (Women in Live Music) – they’ll be sharing their experience of life on the road. Join us, this is an important one. Wednesday 7th July 6pm BST
