Support Act is delighted to announce the launch of its long-awaited Wellbeing Helpline to support those working in all facets of the music industry struggling with mental health issues. This has been made possible with support from Alberts’ The Tony Foundation and Levi Strauss Australia.

Support Act CEO Clive Miller spoke about the new helpline, saying “a specialised service specifically tailored to the unique challenges faced by artists and music workers will be of enormous benefit to all people working in our industry.”

A free and confidential service, the Wellbeing Helpine is available to anyone working in Australian music who needs to talk to someone about any aspect of their wellbeing. Staffed by professional counsellors, they will offer expertise in all areas related to mental health such as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, as well as issues related to loneliness, relationship breakdown, and financial worries. The service will also offer specific urgent support for people who may be a risk to themselves or others.

The Wellbeing Helpline is accessible 24 hours, 365 days of the year by calling 1800 959 500 within Australia or via the Wellbeing Helpline website.
