Music and the Mind: a panel on mental health

Recent research has shown that there’s a high incidence of depression and anxiety among musicians. With low pay, unreliable work, bullying, stress and other factors all playing a part, keeping your head in check can often be a huge challenge – as can finding support when you need it the most.

To open up discussion about mental health, we’re bringing together a few people for a frank chat about maintaining a healthy – and creative – mind. Lead by Sally Howland (Support Act), the panel will feature psychologist Denni Meredith (ClinPsych Pty Ltd), GP Dr. Jessica Vandekamp (Flinders University Health Service) and artist Heather Frahn. They’ll look at how we can identify mental illness and the steps we can take to support ourselves and others.

Presented by APRA AMCOS and Support Act.

Venue: The Jade Monkey 142-160 Flinders Street Adelaide
