Performing artists are twice as likely to attempt suicide, and depression is five times higher than the general population. Awareness about this issue is on the rise but there’s still work to be done to help support people suffering and stop mental illnesses getting worse within our industry. Katie and Alexa talk about their personal struggles, their thoughts and speak to the incredible Annemarie Lewis Thomas, founder and principal of The MTA - a college that is ahead of its time in its approach to mental health and the students.
