of the industry with accredited psychotherapy training.
We understand the complex nature of the industry and the issues freelancers may face and offer professional, bespoke support to productions, studios and crew.
In response to industry demand, Sarah McCaffrey, our founder, combined her experience of working in film and media and as a psychotherapist (MBACP) to create Solas Mind.
A unique company that aims to shine a spotlight on mental health and well-being, offering a professional, accessible service for all.
We are advocates for better mental health in Film and TV production and provide a full
consultancy and support service to the industry.
Passionate about mental health we do not want to offer a service that merely 'ticks a box'.
We specialise in providing well-being advice; offering HR support, counselling, mental health and suicide prevention training, guidance and talks.
Packages of online counselling sessions are available that can be booked confidentially
with our trained and accredited therapists by crew/staff via a private link that
can be placed on call sheets, around the set, at the office or studio.
Our counselling and training team are all fully qualified and accredited mental health professionals, ensuring that training and support is safe and professional.
We offer a bespoke service to companies in the creative sector
and can tailor a package to suit your exact requirements.
Expert training to support mental health, in the workplace and beyond
We offer a range of evidence-based face to face and digital learning, from awareness raising to skill development. Our courses empower people to notice signs of mental ill health, and encourage them to break down barriers, listen in a non-judgemental way, and signpost to support for recovery.
Sarah has an understanding of the industry, she can absolutely understand the issues that trainees and freelancers face and their current potential anxieties.
Sarah and her team at Solas Mind have been offering 1-2-1 counselling to our HETV Trainee Finder trainees, First Break and Make a Move participants for those who have felt that they needed someone to speak to in the COVID-19 pandemic.
The sessions have been easy to book and feedback from those who have attended has been positive. Trainees have appreciated that ScreenSkills HETV has ensured that they have had access to this kind of support in this uncertain time and we have really welcomed working with Sarah to provide it
