Early Evening

During Mental Health Week, this panel discussion will look at the challenges of mental health in the TV workplace, where working as a freelancer on short contracts in a highly pressured environment can make people (especially the young) feel vulnerable.

The event will focus on the general (freelance-centric) workforce in the TV industry and the mental health issues they may experience. It will also look at how companies can be “good employers”, and will highlight good examples of on-screen representation of mental health in general.

Speakers: 
Chair: Caroline Frost, TV Chair, Broadcasting Press Guild
Richard Bentley, Creative Director, Postcard Productions
Julia Lamb, Media Engagement & Awards Manager, Mind
Alex Pumfrey, CEO, The Film and TV Charity
