WarnerMedia Celebrates World Mental Health Day
This World Mental Health Awareness Day, WarnerMedia is joining forces with The Film and TV Charity to support its new campaign “Let’s Reset” tackling the mental health challenges facing the industry.
The film and TV industry is where magic is made – and yet 9 out of 10 people working within TV and film have experienced poor mental health.
“Let’s Reset” campaign will tackle the stigma still associated with mental health by challenging common preconceptions, improving attitudes and behaviors across the industry, and demonstrating the benefits of healthier, more supported, and inclusive working environments, including greater creativity, diversity, and retention of talent.
