Mini Guide 4

Create & send out a wellbeing pack

What you need to know

Productions often involve long working hours and quite intense periods of work, sometimes away from home and often working alongside new people. It’s important that all those who are about to embark on your project, no matter how long for, know how to access the support that’s in place to protect their mental health and wellbeing.

A wellbeing pack can communicate what mental health support is available for crew during production, so they know how to get help if they need it.

The starter documentation crew members receive, like contracts, basic forms and deal memos, can also include wellbeing information. This sends a positive message about mental health to those who come on board. We know that new team members are recruited throughout production, so make sure you send this pack to everyone, whenever they join.
