The Film and TV Charity has today launched a suite of online resources to help freelancers look after their mental health.

Visitors to the charity’s Freelancer Wellbeing Hub can undertake a quiz that enables them to set specific mental health goals and discovered tailored support by identifying signs of stress. The quiz was developed with business psychologists at Thrive Therapeutic Software.

Meanwhile, an animated film commissioned for the hub highlights sources of stress and ways of prioritising wellbeing.

The hub also features a directory of common issues facing freelancers in their day-to-day work including building a support network and ways of managing difficult conversations.

The hub is the first major initiative to be launched as part of the charity’s year-long Let’s Reset mental health and wellbeing campaign, which builds on its landmark Looking Glass survey. Published in 2019, the survey found that a lack of support was a key factor in freelancers’ mental health and wellbeing.

Further activity on the hub will focus on financial concerns, forming connections and staying healthy in periods of unemployment.
