Backline connects music industry professionals and their families with mental health and wellness resources – streamlining access to a network of trusted organizations and care providers that understand this line of work.
SHOW UP TO HELP BACKLINE BRING FREE MENTAL HEALTH & WELLNESS RESOURCES TO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY RIGHT NOW.
This year has brought mental health to the forefront of so many people’s minds. At Backline, we’re so grateful that people are giving their mental health the attention it deserves, but our work is far from over. According to a 2020 study by Vertava Health, over 50% of musicians struggle with depression, 12% reported having suicidal thoughts and over 73% of independent musicians have struggled with anxiety.
Whether you’re backstage, on stage, or watching in the crowd, your donation directly helps the music industry build back stronger. We are so grateful for all the support we’ve received thus far and we urge you to keep showing up for the music community.
With your donations, we can provide more music industry professionals with mental health & wellness services, such as: one-on-one case management, support groups, and exclusive wellness offerings. With your support, we can scale our existing programs to serve more music industry professionals, and continue to build new programs that meet the needs of our community in real time.
By sharing our Network for Good campaign, we can increase the size of our operations to match the needs of our population. With help from you, we can diversify our offerings and further reach into the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities to provide mental health support and resources.
