Anyone in the arts and entertainment community can call for compassionate, confidential, non-judgmental support with a tough situation.
We can help people carve out a viable path to improved well-being and connect them with existing support systems and resources.
We can help with things like:
- accessing community services and other resources
- identifying strategies to cope with stress
- developing tools to tackle problem situations at work or at home
- information on mental health resources, healthcare options and help navigating the system
