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.
