MUSICIANS 4 MENTAL HEALTH

Studies show musicians are more likely than the general public to suffer mental health issues. Almost 60% of professional musicians have suffered from a psychological issue and almost half have experienced problems with loneliness, maintaining meaningful relationships and drugs and alcohol abuse, according to data from the UK.

The changing nature of the music business, gruelling schedules, being locked inside a tour bus, declining music sales together with the working hours is taking its toll.

The Forest City London Music Awards (FCLMA) is committed to organizing/coordinating music events for the music community and community at large with organizations dedicated to the overall mental health and well-being people in our community. We are dedicated to partnering and working with local mental health groups to raise awareness, end the stigma associated with mental health, generate positive conversations and help musicians when in need.
