VIDEO: SOUND ADVICE || Music & Mental Health - MusicNSW
MH panel hero

MusicNSW, APRA AMCOS and Support Act present a very special instalment of SOUND ADVICE - Music & Mental Health.

This panel focuses on how to develop the resilience to survive and thrive in an inherently uncertain industry, seeing and supporting those around you, and managing your mental health through the COVID-19 crisis.

Artist Manager Mel Cheng from One Louder (Alex The Astronaut, Ball Park Music, Paul Kelly) talks with Parissa Tosif from Vallis Alps, psychologist Amy Radford (The Mindful Performer) and CEO of Support Act Clive Miller about the challenges and triggers artists face around things like frequent travel, financial uncertainty, bandmate tensions, and irregular work hours all through the prism of the pandemic.

This incisive conversation about mental health and the music industry in 2020 is an essential companion piece to the unrelenting stress and tension of the moment.


This panel took place on the stolen land of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. We extend our heartfelt respect to elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be.

SOUND ADVICE is supported by Create NSW and APRA AMCOS.
