MENTAL HEALTH FOR musicIAns & ARTISTS
Mental health has been in the news for a long time, and even more so since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. One of the most demanding and difficult, yet rewarding and important, professions is that of the musician. Musicians have been particularly hard hit by both the closure of live music for so long, and the impact on income caused by Brexit impairing their ability to tour in Europe. Bromley resident, respected mindset coach, and broadcaster Zeenat Noorani aims to bring attention to a lot of musicians at the Priory Live music festival on 6th August and will be interviewing numerous musicians on the day
"Music is known to be food for the soul, and to be one of the things that draws people together, and makes life worth living", says Zeenat, "It is often given to us by many gifted, troubled creatives such as Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears, and Whitney Houston, who have suffered from issues such as depression, anxiety, and drug addiction and dietary problems. I want to play my part in helping to add this topic to the range of mental health challenges that are now being more and more shared, and as a result, addressed. As an ex-professional performer in ice skating, I know the pressures of performance and backstage and touring and I feel great empathy towards musicians. I am really looking forward to learning from - and helping - musicians at the festival."
