Looking Glass Shattered

Looking Glass Survey 2021

Take the survey

Is work leaving you feeling shattered? By telling us about your experience you can help make a real difference to the support we offer to the industry.

In 2019 we ran The Looking Glass Survey, looking at the mental health and wellbeing of people working behind the scenes in the film, TV and cinema industry. More that 9,000 of you completed the survey, with the results highlighting a mental health emergency in the industry.

Now, we need to hear from you again. The last two years have presented everyone working in film, TV and cinema with unprecedented challenges. By taking part in the survey, you will help us provide support to everyone behind the scenes in the industry and allow us to shape that support with an up-to-date view of what’s happening to their mental health and wellbeing.

About the survey

Why is the survey important?

We know mental health in the industry is a problem. The findings of this research will enable us to help and support people working in film, TV and cinema.

Should I answer the survey?

If you work behind the scenes in the Film and TV industry then this survey is for you. Completing the survey will take less time than it takes to have a cup of coffee, and your answers can help us build the right support.

How will you use my data?

The survey is completely anonymous. At the end you will be asked if you'd like to participate further or sign up to hear more from us - this information will not be included with any of your answers.

Helping make real change

With the results of 2019 survey we launched the Whole Picture Programme, a programme of change built in collaboration with the industry. The programme includes toolkits for mentally healthy productions, peer-to-peer support for freelancers, people skills and training guides, industry actions for improving behaviours and new, recently launched bullying services.

This programme of work was only possible with your help. You can make sure these services continue to develop with people in the industry, simply by taking 15 minutes to complete the survey.
