The resource was developed before the current Covid crisis and was due to be released in the coming months. However, our organisations know that the unprecedented situation has exacerbated wellbeing challenges for many.
At least one in six workers experience mental health problems, including anxiety and depression. We all know that there can be situations and issues that can impact on our mental wellbeing and in some cases lead to poor mental health.
Although there are a number of resources available there we felt that there was a gap in awareness and provision for creative freelancers.
