When working with contributors on production it is important that their physical safety, mental health and psychological wellbeing is taken care of.
With the increase of mental health awareness in the industry, it is important that productions are competent to assess and provide the correct support. To help with this we produced a guidance document on how to manage mental health and psychological wellbeing, along with an accompanying checklist which is available on our website. Documents on the website:
- Safety A-Z: Managing Mental Health and Psychological Wellbeing in Productions
- Forms & Checklists: Managing Mental Health and Psychological Wellbeing in Productions
(Accessible for retainer clients)
