Backline is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that connects music industry professionals and their families with mental health and wellness resources. We want to build a safer and more supportive music industry by helping our community access quality mental health care providers that understand this line of work.
Being a professional in the music industry is a rewarding but demanding experience. Oftentimes professional constraints make it difficult to get the support needed, and we understand that finding a provider who works around these constraints can be a barrier to getting help.
Backline, the music industry’s mental health and wellness resource simplifies the process by compiling resources tailored to the music industry, and enabling an individual to access the help they need immediately. Their services are aimed at finding the ways an individual can continue to do the work they love while feeling healthy and supported.
Available for free to artists, managers, agents, crew, producers, labels, and their families, Backline programs offer:
Case Management — Backline’s clinicians work one-on-one with individuals to create a custom mental health plan specifically catered to their needs, taking into account unique mental health challenges, financial, and insurance status, and providing them with a customized list of therapists and resources. Individuals can schedule a free phone call right from our website.
Support Groups — Moderated by licensed therapists, virtual support groups are available to join three times a week, providing a safe place for people to come together and talk about what it means to work in the music industry in today’s global climate.
Wellness Offerings— Backline has partnered with wellness platforms to provide free subscriptions and curated content so that the music industry can stay mentally fit—on and off the road; includes meditation, yoga, breathwork, and more.
