Looking after you
Putting yourself first can feel like an impossible task, especially when working in the fast-paced, demanding industry that is film and TV. Often your physical and mental wellbeing is at the bottom of your to-do list.
Only 11% of respondents to our Looking Glass Survey 22 said that they considered the industry to be a “mentally healthy place to work”. There is clearly a lot that still needs to change, such as working hours, proper training and recruitment practices, all of which might be outside of your control. But there are simple steps you can take to safeguard your mental wellbeing and help you perform better at work.
Welcome to the Film and Television Charity. Calls are recorded for the purposes of quality and staff training. This is a confidential service, however, there are some exceptions to this and these are where there may be a risk to your own health and safety, that of others or if you have been involved in a crime. An advisor will be with you shortly, Thank You.
All of our advisors are busy at the moment. Would you like to book an appointment?
