INTRODUCTION

BAPAM (British Association for Performing Arts Medicine) provides clinical care for performers and education about healthy performance practice.

Together with mental health professionals, charities and unions working in the performing arts sector, we have developed guidance to support the development and delivery of services specifically for performing artists. The guidance is designed to be used by:

·         organisations commissioning or wishing to commission mental health services for performing artists
·         organisations and practitioners providing mental health and wellbeing services for performing artists
·         education providers offering mental health and wellbeing support to students
·         individuals and agencies wishing to support best practice for performing artists

We would be very grateful for your views on the consultation document prior to final publication in October by completing the following questionnaire (28 questions) by September 15 2019. Your responses are anonymous, unless you choose to give your details and will only be used by BAPAM to evaluate and improve this document.

BAPAM is a registered charity. Details of how you can become more involved in our work are provided at the end of the survey, along with contact details for further advice including free clinical appointments.
