This session will look at how we keep ourselves well under stress and pressure. The Film and TV Industry can be fast paced and intense, so protecting our mental health and wellbeing is crucial to our resilience, especially when away from home and our usual networks of support.
This is a practical session looking at tools, tips and techniques to help keep you on track.
