The first major Australian study into the mental health and wellbeing of creative industry workers has launched as part of a partnership between Never Not Creative, UnLtd and Everymind.
The study will assess the mental health and wellbeing of individuals working in the media, marketing and creative industries, along with their attitudes towards mental health.
Chris Freel, CEO of UnLtd, said:
“Through working with our charity partners such as Batyr, we know what a critical issue mental ill health is. We know one in five Australians experience a mental illness every year but over half of those will not seek help. Sadly, suicide is still the biggest killer of young Australians aged 15-44. We also know from conversations with our corporate partners, that mental health is a topic that people in our industry can relate to and something that affects people across all levels.”
