"Solas Mind have been instrumental in keeping our crew feel safe and supported at work during the Covid 19 pandemic. From support on how to deal with and recognise signs of people struggling with mental health to being a great support for myself with the pressures of working as a Covid production manager. Every production should have a professional mental service like Solas Mind onboard to support crew."
Georgette Turner, Director, Production Safety Boat Rocker Studios
"The pressure on crew to present a strong front that you're OK and not show weakness or flaws is enormous. The pressures of being freelance are wide ranging and often invisible. There is no one who is looking out for individuals not coping so it's important that there is someone external that they can speak to without fear of being exposed. The industry may be open for business and full steam ahead, we are not back to normal. An independent counselling service like the wonderful Solas Mind available on every production and training beforehand would be invaluable to any crew who may be struggling to cope. Any avenue open to the freelancers in Film and TV which gives them professional help from qualified individuals and stops problems becoming something more serious should be embraced and welcomed by all productions and become standard practise"
Harriet Lawrence, Supervising Location Manager
"Solas Mind delivered mental health awareness training for our crew as part of a package of wellbeing support and it was so beneficial. Too many people are still caught up in the stigma of addressing their mental health.Having Solas Mind on call throughout production, offering a professional support service was invaluable. In the current climate we need this now more than ever
Emma Mallett, Production Manager
