Mental Health Week is May 6-12, 2019 and we want to #GetLoud about mental wellness in the music industry. We sat down with The Trews at the JUNOS to talk about mental health in music. Watch the full video below to hear their thoughts on the wealth gap in the music industry, why sobriety and proper diet is important, and what they do to prioritize their self-care. 💙



It’s incredibly important that those experiencing mental health challenges know there’s someone to turn to. Unison has helped over 650 individuals and their families receive help when they’re struggling. As we continue the conversation, more people are beginning to ask for help when they need it, and demand keeps increasing.

In order to ensure help is readily available for all Canadian music professionals, we require the support of music lovers and our community. With your donations, music workers in crisis can count on someone to talk to, and somewhere to access resources.

Donate today to invest in the health and resilience of the Canadian music community.
