The Music Managers Forum (MMF) have re-published The MMF Guide To Mental Health 2021, updating a free online resource originally made available in 2017 in partnership with
music charities Music Support and Help Musicians. 

This new expanded version, co-authored with Sam Parker of specialist mental health consultants Parker Consultancy, is tailored specifically at the well-being concerns of modern day music managers and includes detailed chapters on areas including Stress Management, Imposter Syndrome, Anxiety & Depression and Alcoholism & Drug Dependency. 

Featuring an introduction from MMF Chair and Biffy Clyro manager, Paul Craig, and closing words from David Joseph, Chairman & CEO, Universal Music UK, the guide also includes a full directory of professional support services and signposting to further reading and detailed expertise.

Paul Craig, MMF Chair:

“I’m really proud that the MMF continues to recognise the importance of mental health support for music managers and their clients. Through initiatives like this updated Guide and our revised Code of Practice we continue to be part of a vital industry-wide conversation. Managers and artists often experience extreme stress, with a myriad of highs and lows, which has only recently been properly recognised and which the pandemic has exacerbated and placed immense focus on. The more we talk openly and candidly about these pressures, the better the safeguarding and guidance everyone will be able to provide in the coming years.”
