Hi5Ghost explores mental health issues in the music industry
Last month, Bristol-based filmmaker, Jeremy Wiles, dropped a documentary exploring the mental health dilemma in the music industry. After neglecting his own struggles with mental health, Hi5Ghost decided it was time to talk to his friends and associates about how things like social media and nightlife culture can negatively impact the mental health of people working in the music industry.
In an industry full of partying, drugs and alcohol, Hi5Ghost asks his industry friends how they’ve managed to cope amidst it all. The documentary highlights how the sometimes anti-social nature of producing music can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety and isolation. The film also includes a call to action for musicians, and recommends those who are struggling right now to contact Help Musicians UK (MMM@helpmusicians.org.uk). Watch Jeremy’s new documentary below.
