Backline connects music industry professionals and their families with mental health and wellness resources—streamlining access to a network of trusted organizations and care providers that understand this line of work.

Backline is a platform for music industry professionals and their families to learn, ask questions, and find clinical support to navigate mental health challenges. Life in this industry can be incredibly isolating and difficult; Backline provides a safe, private, and immediate place to go for help.

The need for Backline has grown significantly since we initially set out, as mental health challenges continue to increase as a result of COVID-19’s impact on the landscape of the industry.

“During what feels like our most challenging time as an industry, I am so touched to be a part of a community which provides perfect support and understanding in our unique cultural framework,” wrote one crew member about Backline’s services.

To accommodate the new, growing needs for care in this community, we’ve successfully launched the following programs:

  • 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.

We are proud to provide a safe and secure environment for individuals to find resources to support their mental health and wellness journey, especially as the music industry continues to face uncertainty.
