About this toolkit

Even before Covid 19, creatives were 3 times more likely to develop a mental health condition than the average UK adult. As Covid hit, and the pandemic started to impact the lives and livelihoods of creatives beyond recognition, we all needed our wits about us more than ever, yet many of us were actually at our wits end.

We wanted to do something. So we made Balance.

Initially a series of mental health talks to help creatives balance their minds and their books, Balance has evolved into this toolkit. In it you’ll find bitesize video clips – from those talks and other business-focused training – plus other quick reads, audio insights and exercises to do yourself.

Our hope? That we can help you make sense of how to live well and make a good living as a fellow creative…
