The message goes on to say that over the next year, Paradym will be “working with BMMUK to provide evidence-based resources that help inform and educate on the importance of emotional wellbeing across BMMUK’s community”.

Musicians have come together today (October 10) to mark World Mental Health Day. “This year has been so demanding for all of us,” Tim Burgess wrote. “Sometimes it’s difficult to see anything beyond the dark clouds.
“But hope is always with us. Reach out if you need to, take time out if things gets too much. It’s about looking after each other and ourselves.”
