It’s time to talk about mental health and wellbeing in the creative sector

Date posted: 31 August 2017

Ulster University and wellbeing charity Inspire have come together on the SHoWCaSE: A snapshot of health and wellbeing in the creative sector project. People working in the creative sector are invited to take part in a survey to find out more about how they work, how they feel and how they cope with the challenges and rewards that the industry offers. This is designed to understand the health and wellbeing of people in the creative industries in UK and Ireland. 

It is well known that those in the creative sector make a vital and varied contribution to the health and wellbeing of society; however, little attention is paid to the health and wellbeing of those working in the creative sector. This is an important piece of work because the results of this research will provide recommendations and resources to improve the support available to people working right across the creative industries.

This text and the study to which it refers have been approved by the School of Psychology Ethics Filter Committee, Ulster University.
