We invited a 100-strong chorus of artists, writers, musicians, broadcasters, sports stars and more to contribute to Now We’re Talking, a mental health campaign, run in partnership with Lyons Tea and Pieta House. Wyvern Lingo's Karen Cowley talks how she manages her Mental Health in the music industry.
Becoming vocal about mental health is essential to removing any stigma that has previously been attached. Working in the music industry does not make looking after your mental health easy.
Exhaustion, stress and disappointment are constant factors, as well as an endless flow of alcohol everywhere you go. I personally have struggled with anxiety directly related to my work over the last while, and have been trying to talk to as many people as possible to try figure out how best to cope with the adrenalin highs & lows.
I’m finding that everyone has their own story and that it’s completely normal to need to reach out for help, whatever the scale of the problem – and that maintaining good mental health requires time and effort (well spent).
100 Voices was published in the Hot Press Mental Health Special in conjunction with Lyons Tea and Pieta House as part of the Now We're Talking Campaign. For more please visit hotpress.com/now-were-talking/
