On June 19th, during A2IM Indie Week a panel discussion took place at the New York Law School, regarding mental health issues in the music industry. The topic covered what challenges for artists and industry workers alike face with regards to burnout, suicide, and mental health issues that need our attention. This was an open conversation on ways we as a community can address mental health issues and smash associated stigmas. We also discussed ways we can make sure our industry peers are protected and be responsible partners to the artists we represent.
