The Music Commission is proud to announce its support of the MusicHelps Wellbeing Service: a free of charge mental health and wellbeing counseling service for music people throughout Aotearoa.
The MusicHelps Wellbeing Service provides online, on the phone and in-person counselling support tailored to members of the music community around New Zealand – this includes artists, managers, roadies, crew, record label staff and anyone who has contributed to the making of live or recorded music. The Service acts with respect and dignity at all times, without judgment, seeking the best interests of the people who engage with it irrespective of their age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, financial status, religious belief or role.
With the financial support of the Music Commission, MusicHelps now has the resources to be able to offer its specialist counselling skills to all in the music industry who need it, not solely to those for whom financial hardship has been an issue. We recognise that for lots of people working in NZ music, income fluctuates through out the year. By removing the requirement to declare that financial difficulty is a factor, the Service can be there for more kiwi music people when they need it most.
If you or a loved one in the music industry is in need of this service, contact 0508 MUSICHELP (0508 687424357)
