Abstract

This report offers a view of the mental health and wellbeing of those who work in the creative industries, primarily, but not exclusively resident in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland. It has uncovered some health and wellbeing concerns for which the sector and wider society need to take some responsibility. Mental health issues, substance use, suicidality were prevalent; but so too, there is evidence of hope and resilience in the sector that can be built upon.
