The Spring 2018 issue of Zerb included a special supplement around the issue of mental health, looking at how it can affect people working in the camera department and TV/film industry more generally – and, most importantly, explaining various avenues where help can be found if you or a colleague are suffering from any form of mental health problem.
To put the supplement together, we worked with our friends at The Film & Television Charity (formerly the CTBF) who recently launched an important 24/7 helpline, where support and advice across a wide range of issues, including:
