Mental health: Media industry probes ‘uncomfortable truth’

The BBC cites the Sutton Trust’s Pay As You Go? research in an article on mental health in the film and television industry.

The film and television industry has launched its largest-ever survey into the mental health and wellbeing of its workforce.

It marks the first phase of The Looking Glass study, led by the Film and Television Charity, following 2,000 calls to its industry support line.

Alex Pumfrey, the organisation’s CEO, urged workers to anonymously contribute in order to “create real change”.

The survey will run until July, with the results revealed this autumn.
