Personal Support and Advocacy

Talk things through • Learn how to get help• Build your support system

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
