Australian Screen Industries Health & Wellbeing Survey 2022

Griffith Film School is leading this industry-wide initiative in the form of a survey to assess mental health in the Australian screen industries. The first study focusing on the performing arts industry in Australia was conducted in 2016 by Entertainment Assist in association with College of Arts, Victoria University. This study revealed the mental health and wellbeing of screen practitioners was below the general population of workers in other industries.

The findings of this comprehensive survey will serve as a benchmark to compare our findings, while including the impact of COVID19. The results will forge new research into the important yet under-represented communities that make up our screen industry and will include feedback from students. Survey results and recommendations will be rolled out In collaboration with screen agencies, industry guilds, and providers in the health and well-being space, such as Ben Steel’s Screen Well organisation. Partners and collaborators include: Centre for Work, Organisation & Wellbeing (WOW), Griffith University; School of Applied Psychology, Griffith University; QLD Screen Collective (QSC) and Screen Well.

The survey link will be available shortly. For more information on the The Australian Screen Industries Health & Well Being Survey, please contact: Bobbi-Lea Dionysius.
