Did you know that

creatives are more at risk

of developing mental health issues? At the same time their work is based on their own

thoughts

,

ideas

, and

emotions

. Worse still, the creative industry is full of pressure (it’s a mess), resulting in a space packed with people struggling with mental health issues. But despite how common an issue, there is little to no

conversation

,

information

or

actions

taken to improve conditions. Too many creatives feel alone or abnormal when the troubles come knocking, which only amplifies the problem.

Let’s change it,

together

.

Mission


  1. Highlight and normalize mental issues and the

    challenges of having a creative mind.

  2. Promote openness

    to fight feelings of loneliness and abnormality.

  3. Connect creatives

    , let them share their story as part of recovery or to help others.

  4. Acknowledge mental health issues in the workplace, and

    provide research and resources that can help sooth and prevent them.






We want

all creative schools

to include at least one lecture on work psychology and mental health, so that students can better help themselves and others, and become empathetic creative leaders in the future. We also want to

teach lead creatives of today

basic knowledge in work psychology, how the creative mind works and how they personally can make a difference.

How

You

Can Help

To truly make a difference, we are urging stakeholders everywhere to acknowledge the inevitable link between mental health and creativity. But first, we need to fight stigma, and that is a job for all of us.

The

Creative Confessions Pledge & Guidelines

will help you take better care for yourself and others, help end stigma and build a more people-friendly and sustainable creative industry.
