19. Mental Health Resources For Musicians with Amanda Power

19. Mental Health Resources For Musicians with Amanda Power

This week on the show we’re discussing a topic that has become increasingly important over the last year - Mental Health Resources for Musicians. And joining me on the show is the Executive Director of the Unison Benevolent Fund - Amanda Power. 

Unison is a non-profit, registered music industry charity that provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. They help professional music makers in times of hardship, illness or economic difficulties.  

We are so lucky to have an organization like this in Canada, especially over the last year and Amanda and I had a great discussion about how the pandemic has affected the music industry, how musicians and those that work in the music industry can get mental health assistance, and she shares some tips to help with our mental health well-being. 

Amanda recommends: Tim Hicks - Campfire Troubadour + Pink - All I Know So Far
Jen recommends:  Olivia Rodrigo - Sour
