Help Musicians, the largest provider of health and welfare support for the British music industry, has announced MUSIC MINDS MATTER - a new campaign for music industry-wide support of the world's first dedicated 24/7 mental health service for people working in music.

Help Musicians is Britain’s largest leading independent music charity, serving the music industry for almost 100 years. It has identified a mental health crisis’ in the industry, which has led the charity to initiate a unique Mental Health Fund with an investment starting at £100,000.

The announcement of the campaign sees Help Musicians call for ‘arm in arm’ support from the industry and philanthropists to match its investment pound for pound, as a response to the tragic, untimely death of Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington.

MUSIC MINDS MATTER will fund the ground-breaking 24/7 mental health helpline and service, launching late 2017, that will combine listening, advice and signposting with clinical, medical, therapeutic and welfare support for those who need it. The charity remains committed to campaigning, educating, and encouraging conversations about mental and emotional wellbeing.

Just doubling the Help Musicians investment, with a minimum of £200k, will allow the mental health service to be sustainable beyond 2018.  The charity can then continue to proactively raise money for the new fund, with ambitions for roll out with global partners in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Let's join forces and make a difference. Thank you for your support.
