Thousands of you have come forward and shared your stories, in the hope of helping others and creating a healthier, happier industry.
Many of you want to talk more openly about how you’re feeling — an amazing 86% of you said you would feel comfortable supporting a peer who was struggling with their mental health. However, sadly, 1 in 10 of you said you often felt isolated and left out.
That’s why we’re making this online mental health platform, delivered by Togetherall (formerly BigWhiteWall), free and accessible for anyone who works behind the scenes in our industry.
This is a safe space, where you can express your thoughts and concerns openly and anonymously.
As well as receiving support in group or one-to-one chats you can also access guided self-help courses that cover a range of subjects from managing mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, as well as problem-solving and assertiveness training. You can also access self-assessment tools and track your progress on the platform.
You can seek the advice of both your peers in and out of the industry as well as professionally-trained Wall Guides who monitor and support the community.
The platform is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
So, if you or a member of your household work behind the scenes in UK film, TV or cinema.
