6ft From The Spotlight

6ft From the Spotlight is a non profit Community Interest Company set up to improving the mental wellbeing of music and film crew in the UK. Founder Matt Longley has posted on the Bectu blog here:

“In the film and TV industry we know that there is a higher prevalence of work-related stress and mental health issues as highlighted by the Film and TV Charity in 2019. Their survey reported that 87% of workers had suffered from a mental health condition versus 65% in the general population.

More worryingly, 55% reported having had suicidal thoughts as opposed to 20% in the general population.”
