Overcoming the Roadblocks Every Musician Faces

Mental health for musicians is often ignored until one celebrity or another has a public meltdown.

Unfortunately, it's not surprising that mental health issues are a common problem among musicians and artists.

This can be due to the pressures of the industry, the lack of stability, and the intense focus on their craft.

Mental health issues can also be caused by the lifestyle of being a musician or artist, which can be extremely demanding and isolating.
