We (PerformingArtsTutor.com) are proud of signing up to the TIME4CHANGE: Mental Health Charter, and commit ourselves to taking positive action around mental health, to support good mental wellbeing and challenge stigma.

Having been made aware of this initiative by the wonderful Annemarie Lewis Thomas, principal at The (Award Winning) MTA we signed up immediately.

That mental health problems are more common among performers than the general population is a fact that hadn’t originally occurred to us, but on reflection now seems sadly clear.  So for us, in ourselves; this charter has already made a difference.

Every year one in three of us will experience mental health problems.

 The Charter outlines actions that we can take in order to make mental health and wellbeing a priority and to improve the day to-day lives of those in the performing arts and to improve outcomes for those who experience mental health difficulties. We want to actively encourage people to discuss issues of mental health and well-being and also to access high quality help and support when it is necessary.
It’s an essential READ. And for those in a position to sign-up their organisation, we encourage you to do so now by contacting Annemarie ASAP.
