Our inaugural Minimum Standards for a Mentally Healthy Music Industry have been developed in consultation with representatives from the music industry and regulatory authorities in line with the actions proposed in the National Mental Health Commission’s National Workplace Initiative.

They seek to encourage action to protect, respond, and promote the positive aspects of work that contribute to good mental health. 

This includes a commitment to provide workplaces that are psychologically safe, and which take proactive measures to address safety at work issues including bullying, harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct, racism, ageism, homophobia and transphobia. 



Signing the Standards is your opportunity to make a statement and show your people and the industry your commitment:

  • Please provide any further details regarding mental health policies or programs you have in place



Maggie Collins, Executive Director:

“We have been involved in consulting with Support Act in the creation of this brilliant initiative. It is in all our best interests that we progress as an industry to improve the lives of ALL of our workers. Our Managers believe in integrity, respect and providing healthy partnerships via our own Code of Conduct. It’s with this motivation that we welcome these Minimum Standards, and thank Support Act for putting in the work to develop them.”

Dean Ormston, CEO:

“APRA AMCOS welcomes and endorses Support Act’s Minimum Standards for a Mentally Healthy Music Industry. We value the opportunity to contribute with colleagues across our industry to the co-creation of these Minimum Standards. We are committed to creating and sustaining a positive, safe and inclusive workplace culture and recognise and accept that this requires constant and diligent focus and effort from all of us. We believe the aims of these Minimum Standards are appropriately reflected in our policies and procedures for employees and our practices in the industry.”
