We know the pressures caused by having to deliver to tight timeframes, under stressful unpredictable circumstances and inflexible budgets. Managers often find themselves feeling stretched and unsupported as they try to look after their teams. Teams need to feel connected, supported and free to be themselves in the workplace. This will allow everyone to operate at their best and ultimately produce better work. On this page you will find a range of wellbeing resources for employers that can help to create a supportive environment and start important conversations around wellbeing and mental health.
The Looking Glass Report
We have created the Whole Picture Toolkit to support people at all levels of production, and to help managers and senior production and creative leaders to look after their team’s mental health and wellbeing. By acknowledging the culture and working conditions that have been shown to impact on our industry’s mental health, the Toolkit provides tools, guidance, and resources to help mitigate against some of those pressures.
Easy to navigate and completely free to use, The Whole Picture Toolkit offers practical solutions for production companies to help improve working practices in the industry. You can use the toolkit during pre-production planning, filming, and right up until the end of post-production. By having access to our Toolkit, everyone can create a supportive and mentally healthy environment for their teams. We have a Toolkit team that is also there to handhold your production and guide you as to which elements of the Toolkit are most relevant for your specific production.
