Why your help is so important

In 2019, more than 10,000 people working in film, TV, and cinema took part in the first Looking Glass Survey, uncovering a mental health emergency affecting 9 in 10 industry workers. The survey highlighted the impact that workplace culture, conditions, and the industry’s capability to support its talented workforce was having on their wellbeing.

It also gave us the evidence to begin a movement for change, enabling us to act by: 

We want to hear from you again

Five years on, we want to hear from you again – whether you work in production, post, or craft, on set or in an office, and whether you’re working as a freelancer or in a permanent role. You could be just starting out in the industry or in a senior position, creating content or helping to market, distribute, or exhibit it. Whatever your role in the film, TV, and cinema industry, and wherever you are in the UK, we want to hear from you. 

The conversation about mental health in the workplace – and the things that contribute to how we’re all feeling – has started to change. But financial stresses, a production downturn, the impact of strikes, and widespread redundancies are all adding to the pressures many people in our industry are facing.

The Looking Glass Survey is your chance to tell us how these and other factors are impacting you and, crucially, where our support is needed the most. However you’re feeling, please take a few moments and help us to gather the evidence to make work better for everyone.
