Become a Mental Health First Aider for FREE!

FREE MHFA training for freelancers

Music Support is pleased to offer certain industry freelancers the opportunity to apply for a bursary to become a Mental Health First Aider for FREE thanks to funding from our partners Backup Tech, The Roadie Cookbook and Stagehand.

We are working together to support the welfare of our peers and move closer towards a place where there is at least one MHFA trained crew member on any tour or at any event.

To be eligible for the bursary you must be self-employed, working full time in a freelance capacity (ideally for a minimum of five years) as crew/production personnel (which could range from Rigging and Catering to Production Assistant and Tour Manager and everything in between) or a touring role (having worked on at least one tour) in the UK music and live events industries.
