Last year we asked the film, TV and cinema workforce to tell us about their mental health as part of ground-breaking research into the wellbeing of people working in our industry.
What did we see?
The centrepiece of the research was an online survey – over 9,000 people responded. The Looking Glass survey results reveal a mental health crisis in the workforce.
Nearly 9 in 10 people working in our industry have experienced a mental health problem.
Analysis of the underlying causes reveals three areas that interact to create a perfect storm for poor mental health – the conditions of work, the industry’s culture, and its capability to provide support.
