MUSIC SUPPORT - OUR MISSION
No issue is too big or too small to be outside our area of operation. We are here to help.
Our mission at Music Support is to make sure that nobody in the UK music industry is left to be affected alone with mental ill-health or addiction via our support services and to facilitate prevention and earlier intervention through education, training and workshops.
We believe that those in our industry who are susceptible to mental ill-health and/or addiction are particularly vulnerable due to the environments, lifestyles and stresses that exist within.
Wherever in the industry the individual may be, stigmas surrounding these conditions are still so strong that they can go ignored, unrecognised or untreated until it is too late. We believe that everybody is entitled to confidential, empathetic and non-judgemental support and that the industry should have access to the highest quality of educational workshops and training, delivered professionally and ethically by highly qualified personnel.
Music Support is run by people from the music industry, for people who work in music and live events.
