Wellbeing and mental health in the industry is changing very quickly, with new agreements being negotiated between organisations such as BECTU and PACT
New regulations that came into force on 1/1/23 can be seen at https://bectu.org.uk/news/bectu-members-vote-to-accept-new-tv-drama-agreement
Whilst this is progress, we understand that many people need support or someone to talk to.
It’s really important to get support and advice and there are a number of ways that could help such as:
Talking to the other crew.
Speak to a wellbeing facilitator or an on-set nurse.
Create networks/Whatsapp groups.
There are lots of resources available which are free and confidential.
