The Whole Picture Programme

Working in production can be very challenging, especially during the pandemic. In fact recent research by the Film and TV Charity indicated that 9 in 10 of film and TV professionals have experienced a mental health problem. This session will cover some of the key research findings that demonstrate the industry is in the midst of a mental health crisis, whilst also covering the problematic conditions and culture that must be addressed to create healthier, happier work environments.

The session will look at:

An overview of The Fim and TV Charity.

What wellbeing support is already out there – including their 24/7 FREE support line, counselling, financial and legal advice and grants.

Their research findings – the industry’s mental health crisis.

How has the pandemic changed things….for better and worse.

The industry movement for better mental health – what support and change will there be over the next 2 years?

A spotlight on new industry anti-bullying services.

A spotlight on the forthcoming Toolkit for Mentally Healthy Productions – opportunities to pilot.

Ways to get involved and reflections.
