Help support life-changing services for those who work in the performing arts industry.​​​​​​​

The performing arts inspires, entertains, challenges, and delights millions of people every year.

However, recent research revealed that the very people delivering these life-changing arts experiences every day are in distress.

Entertainment Assist and Victoria University’s report, Working in the Australian Entertainment Industry (van den Eynde, Fisher & Sonn, 2016) uncovered startling statistics. Of the thousands of entertainment industry workers surveyed:

  • 15.2% experienced symptoms of moderate to severe depression (five times higher than the general population)
  • 44% experienced symptoms of moderate to severe anxiety (ten times higher than the general population)
  • Nearly 1 in 10 had attempted suicide

Arts Centre Melbourne’s Arts Wellbeing Collective delivers a range of services, programs and resources, all focused on promoting positive mental health and wellbeing for everyone who works in the performing arts – and all completely free of charge.
