Music Support

Music Support is a charity that helps peers who work in UK music and live events affected by mental ill-health and/or addiction.

Founded in 2016 by people from within the music industry, our team have all been impacted personally by these issues and have seen friends, colleagues and heroes lose their careers, families and even their lives.

We empower our peers to look after the wellbeing of their colleagues (and themselves) through training in Mental Health First Aid and Addiction and Recovery Awareness to prevent them reaching crisis point but, if required, our confidential Helpline, managed by industry peers with lived experience, is available Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm on 0800 030 6789. We offer everything from a non-judgmental listening ear service through to referrals to expert clinicians and care providers for mental health or addiction assessments, therapy and rehab. You are not alone.  

We rely on funds to help to continue our vital work.
