A guide to mental health in the electronic music industry for employees

Organisation: Mind


Working in the electronic music industry can be very rewarding and offers many opportunities, however it can come with a set of unique pressures. These include long hours, high stress, a higher incidence of drugs and alcohol abuse, isolation and insecure work. All of these factors can take a toll on your mental wellbeing.

This guide written by Mind, with industry insiders Ninja Tune, Paradigm, Percolate Music and Poly, is designed to help those working in this field to manage their own mental health and wellbeing.

The PDF includes advice on:

  • Coping with insecure work,
  • Tackling drug and alcohol abuse,
  • Understanding imposter syndrome,
  • Working away from home,
  • Managing when money is tight,
  • and other topics relevant to your industry.

It also includes advice for how to help a colleague who you think may be struggling.

If you are an employer, we have another guide which may help you to support the wellbeing of your staff. You can find it here.
