New support line launches for musicians

Help Musicians UK have created a new support helpline for individuals working in the music industry who suffer from mental health issues.

The 24-hour phone service, which is a part of their #MusicMindsMatter campaign, is a resource where musicians can get counselling for their emotional and psychological problems.

There is a lot of attention being placed on mental health in the music industry since the suicide of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington in mid-July.
