Industry Minds was born in 2018, founded by actors Scarlett Maltman and Cathy Read. The concept was formed with a goal to better mental health support in the creative arts.
What initially started as a podcast then developed into a critically acclaimed mental health support service to those in the arts. To date, Industry Minds operate as a charity who's goal is to provide free and low cost mental health support to anyone in the creative arts through therapy, seminars and other useful tools.
The Award Winning Podcast is available to stream on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Soundcloud and any other platforms you may source your podcasts from. Scarlett and Cathy interview various people in a relaxed setting with a goal to have open and healthy conversations surrounding mental health.
Counsellor Mary Burch BEM joined Industry Minds in February 2018, offering low cost and free counselling sessions to those in the arts. The sessions run fortnightly in London and Scotland with a telephone/skype counselling operating around the clock. The service is the first of its kind in the arts with a goal to make therapy accessible. Mary was awarded a BEM in 2016 and was nominated at The Evening Standards Public Servant of the Year Awards for her services.
In January 2019, Industry Minds welcomed regular monthly running seminars for everyone in the arts.
Industry Minds operates a confidential and vital service for those in the arts and continues to develop accessible ways to help others.
