Today we talk with film composers Caitlin Yeo and Craig Morgan who are making positive changes for the health and wellbeing of their fellow composers. The statistics demonstrate that this sort of freelance creative work is filled with high level stressors and this is an at-risk population for psychological issues. Specifically film composers are…
- 10 times more likely to experience symptoms of anxiety than the general population
- 5 times more likely to experience symptoms of depression than the general population
- and have 3 times the level of sleep disorders than the general population
Look beyond the specific work these film composers do and you will see that creative freelancers in many industries will be facing the same challenges and demands on their mental wellbeing.
