BAPAM has been nominated for its work in supporting the mental and physical health of those working in the performing arts industry.

The nomination is part of the inaugural Industry Minds Awards which takes place this September. Industry Minds is a mental health podcast which has been running since last year and aims to break stigma around mental health in the creative industry.

BAPAM has been nominated for the Healthcare and commercial enterprise award, as an organisation which has undertaken pioneering action for health in the creative arts.

The event takes place on September 22 at the Piano Works West End in London.

Many of our clinicians, board members and office staff will be attending. It’s a ticketed-event and proceeds will go towards funding of a free counselling service which is offered to anyone in the arts via free Skype and telephone sessions.
