A number of specific projects have already been established by CrewCare, while others are currently being looked at by the CrewCare team. The Roady4Roadies day gained industry wide support in it's first year and is set to build on that success next year. CrewCare has collaborated with Support Act in building awareness of their Wellbeing Helpline and reaching out to crew through our Mental Health Matters campaign. Work is also well underway on the first of many Crew Tapes releases and the Heritage Highway program looks set to be launched in 2020.
The inaugural Roady4Roadies has proven a stunning success in so many ways! The national event, an audacious campaign held on March 10th in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth and March 24th in Adelaide, raised over $71,500.00, with nett profit of $62,820.00 already going to the Support Act ‘Roadies fund’.
CrewCare has partnered with Support Act and Griffith University to arrange for accredited courses in Mental Health First Aid training for CrewCare members, approved by the national Mental Health First Aid body and facilitated by Paige Gaudry from PNP Health.
This is a difficult time for the industry. If you're feeling stressed, you may wish to participate in a brief mHealth intervention, freely accessed through a project run by The University of the Sunshine Coast.
Maintaining good mental health is a critical part of every artist and music worker's overall health and wellbeing. CrewCare is proud to collaborate with Support Act to present our Mental Health Matters awareness program.
