#MentallySound

#MentallySound offers a platform to discuss anxiety, fear and depression in an open, honest and non-judgemental fashion. We believe this is an important part of staying afloat.

Many of the musicians and misfits in our community are united by ongoing struggles with emotional wellbeing. 70% of musicians have experienced anxiety or depression, often as a result of their lifestyle, the unpredictable nature of the industry and their personal connection with their art.

Facing the day with balance, resilience and soundness of mind can be a struggle, however music can offer comfort, both as an artform and through the social camaraderie it provides. #MentallySound is a growing collection of articles that explore that.
