Transform lives

  with a gift today

With venues closed and performances cancelled everywhere, many of Australia’s performing arts professionals are facing months of uncertainty and anxiety. Will you help? 

The impact of COVID-19 is creating a mental health crisis for Australia’s performing arts professionals.

Donate now and you’ll help in three important ways:

  • You’ll fund the Support Act Wellbeing Helpline – a 24/7 phone counselling service staffed by clinicians with specialist knowledge of the performing arts. Demand for this service has never been greater, so we urgently need your help.
  • You’ll help train Mental Health First Aiders – and create a peer support program especially for performing arts professionals.
  • You’ll help more people get more help, faster – by putting workshops and self-care resources online so people can access them instantly and without having to meet in person.

The uncertainty caused by COVID-19 is pushing thousands of our most vibrant, creative and passionate people to the brink. 

Your support is needed now more than ever. It could even save lives.
