Mental health for musicians, with Rachel Jepson
This free webinar examines the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health in music and the creative industries. Musician and counsellor Rachel Jepson draws on her experience working with musicians, looking at causes for mental health issues that may have been intensified by the crisis, including discussion of loss of work, creativity, money, and addiction. She also examines coping strategies and talks about where you can seek help.
