Burnout & Belonging: Mental Health, Wellness & the Music Industry

Rialto Hall






Studies show that the mental health of artists and workers in the music industry is worryingly low. Many point to a culture of overworking and hustling that is prevalent across the industry. What would it look like to prioritize wellness in the music industry? How can you build a sustainable career while maintaining wellness? How can we support professionals with disabilities and build an industry that doesn’t lead people to burn-out?
