Mental health Support
We provide wellbeing support in the creative industries. We are the go-to mental health company in Film, TV and Theatre.
Solas Mind provide in-house, online or on-set mental health services
Offering professional, reliable, confidential support and guidance to companies, studios, individuals.
We provide bespoke mental health packages of training, counselling, on-site wellbeing practitioners, suicide and mental health first aid training.
A personal service so that people feel supported and cared for. We want clients to have continuity of care; for individuals to be able to build a relationship with one counsellor, face to face
We work in partnership with you to deliver mental health services that are right for you. We provide an external source of support - an independent, personal service, that is not linked to the company or studio. Thus, individuals are less reticent to seek help if needed.
The challenges of filming schedules, post Covid-19 anxiety and fear, post-traumatic stress, demanding work schedules, adapting to new working practices, social distancing will have a large impact on mental health:
We can offer in-house or online counselling & training.

We are affordable: a professional private practice that does not cost the earth.

On Call Online Support
Bundles of online counselling support sessions can be purchased and appointments can be booked promptly and confidentially as and when needed. The service is tailored to suit the needs of the creative sector with sessions available within a few hours from 6am to 10pm, 7 days a week.
We can also offer a 'pay for what you use' service.
In-house/on set counselling
A day, time and location will be agreed and individuals will be able to book directly and confidentially to see the counsellor on-site
We will endeavour to offer the same counsellor so that clients can build a supportive relationship.
We can provide a counsellor on-set or in-house in the role of a wellbeing practitioner to offer emotional wellbeing and mental health support.
On-site wellbeing practitioners can help individuals manage and process any emotional or mental health problems they may encounter when working with challenging content either in prep, in the rehearsal space, in production or in post.
We can provide wrap around support throughout the whole process, combining on-site support with remote counselling sessions.
Our bespoke in-house courses are custom made to meet the needs of your organisation and are delivered at venues and dates that suit you. Many of our packages can be offered as either a half day or a full day in person or online.
