Self-care & Mental Health: Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle in the Arts

Open to attendees of the Folk Music Ontario‘s 2017 Industry Conference (October 19-22), Unison staff member Amanda Power will be participating on in the panel discussion, Self-care & Mental Health: Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle in the Arts.

The importance of de-stigmatizing mental health and sharing access to support and resources is more relevant than ever, and it’s just as necessary in the music industry. Whether it’s the pressure of lengthy stints of life on the road, managing creative expectations, or balancing the business of the industry with artistic demands, there are many ways to struggle with physical and mental health – especially in a career path that thrives on late nights and high stakes. This open forum discussion strives to highlight some resources and methods to apply toward balancing this lifestyle.
