The Film & TV Charity is inviting the industry to complete the third iteration of its Looking Glass survey into mental health.

The 2022 survey asks individuals to share anonymously their feelings and experiences to help the charity and wider industry understand how to improve ways of working and highlight areas that need change.

The first survey made waves in 2019 when it revealed that nine in 10 people had experienced a mental health problem, while the 2021 follow-up identified that just one in 10 thought TV and film is a mentally healthy place to work.

The findings have led the charity to launch a 24/7 film and TV support line, a bullying advice service, a freelancer wellbeing hub and its Whole Picture toolkit of support and advice for individuals and managers to make positive changes in the workplace.

The charity's chief executive Alex Pumfrey urged everyone in the industry to take a few minutes to complete the survey.

“We’re asking everyone across film, TV, and cinema to take on this challenge by sharing the survey with their colleagues; tell us how you are feeling and what you need,” Pumfrey said. 

"The data it returns is crucial for helping us – and the wider industry – to understand how we need to improve ways of working and the support people need," she said. "Much progress has been made but we also know much more needs to be done."

The charity has also launched a fundraising campaign to help it continue its work in the area.

"Donating to support us in delivering those services is an act of community and generosity which we know all our beneficiaries are incredibly grateful for," Pumfrey said.

“While we completely understand that many are feeling the effects of the cost-of-living crisis at the moment, donations from those who are able to help can make a powerful difference to so many people working behind the scenes.
