Mental health has never been more important in the music industry. 

After suffering blow after blow over the past two years due to the pandemic, music professionals around the globe were stripped of their income streams—and livelihoods. But as the music industry trends up, MusiCares wants the mental health of its professionals to grow in lockstep. 

The MusiCares program provides creatives around the globe with mental health awareness resources. In support of Mental Health Awareness Month, they've launched a free series of events that are open to all.

You can check out the programming, courtesy of a press release MusiCares shared with EDM.com, below. Click the hyperlinks to register.
