The Film and Television Charity assemble mental health taskforce

The Film and Television Charity has released the results of its Through the Looking Glass research into the prevalence of mental health problems within their industry.

9,000 people responded to their survey to reveal nearly 9 in 10 people in the film and television industry have experienced a mental health problem.

Analysis of the underlying causes reveals three areas that interact to create a perfect storm for poor mental health – the conditions of work, the industry’s culture, and its capability to provide support.

In response to their findings, the charity has created a Film and TV Taskforce on Mental Health and in April will launch the Whole Picture Programme - an evidence-based movement for change.

The charity already has the commitment of Banijay, Channel 4, Disney, Endemol Shine, ITV and Sky to the programme.
