Creative Minds and Mental Health: How We Can Find Balance | Daniel Rinaldi

Mental health is often swept under the rug in the music world – only noticed when a celebrity has a public meltdown or takes their own life.

The good news is that the stigma surrounding mental health has been eroding over the past two decades, making it more acceptable to seek help and discuss mental health openly.

Going to a therapist can seem daunting, or even terrifying, but the reality is they are there to help you. No one will judge you – instead it’s a collaborative effort to help you become your best self.
