About the Film & Television Charity
The film, TV and cinema sectors are widely admired and crucial to the UK economy, both in terms of our exceptional creative talent and the sector’s growing economic importance, but a culture of long hours, challenging conditions, and an acceptance of a long-held status quo also mean it can be an incredibly tough sector to work in, with the retention of talent an ongoing problem as a result.
In 2019, the charity found that 9 in 10 working behind the scenes had experienced poor mental health. The pandemic and the harrowing conversation about systemic discrimination that followed the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 have both only served to exacerbate the problem.
Since the introduction of the Film and TV Support Line in 2018, the charity has been on an exciting journey of change and has joined industry partners at the forefront of the movement to make work better for everyone in the industry. As well as providing mental health and financial support and practical resources that are making a difference to thousands of people every year, we have committed to ensuring our services are relevant to and engaging with everyone in the industry, at every stage of their career, no matter what their background. This has included a commitment to becoming an actively Anti-Racist organisation. This means an honest look at the charity, our internal policies and all our outputs going forward. We recognise the importance of long-term investment in this process as we make permanent, structural changes to ensure support is readily accessible to Black, Asian and minority ethnic people in our industry. We are also applying the same principles to other under-represented groups.
The Whole Picture Toolkit is an online resource aimed at making productions more mentally healthy places to work. It has been written with industry influence and empirically backed good practice guidance, and aims to create a trusted place, combined with an easy-to-use customer journey, that will build confidence in users as to how to make changes in their workplace, that places the emphasis on good mental health.
Launched earlier this year, the Toolkit has got off to an amazing start, with uptake from many production and endorsement from broadcasters and other industry bodies. The enthusiasm across the industry means that there are high ambitions for the Toolkit and its ability to make real, lasting change in mental health in the industry over the coming years.
