SWEET RELIEF MUSICIANS FUND AND BACKLINE ANNOUNCE “MUSIC’S MENTAL HEALTH FUND” AND FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN TO PROVIDE MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES TO MUSIC INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS
Fundraising Campaign Features Prize Items from, Mandy Moore, Bob Weir, Dave Matthews, Sturgill Simpson and More
Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and Backline have teamed up to provide no-cost therapy to music industry professionals in need. The organizations, which provide financial and mental health support to the music industry, respectively, are joining forces to fill a critical gap in accessing services.
Backline, the music industry’s mental health and wellness resource, offers a Case Management service that assesses and refers music industry professionals to care providers, organizations, and financial services to support their overall health and wellbeing. Case Managers provide a mental health plan that specifically matches a client's needs, resources, and location.
Clients who are not able to afford the mental health care recommended to them, can now apply for a grant via Sweet Relief’s Music’s Mental Health Fund. This grant is intended to cover unmet costs for a specified number of sessions with a dedicated clinician.
To formally launch the fund, Sweet Relief and Backline are running a campaign on social impact platform, Propeller, which hopes to raise $100,000 towards Music’s Mental Health Fund in order to provide mental health resources to approximately 250 music industry professionals and family members in need.

THE LOS ANGELES ROCK COLLECTIVE Presents 'ROCK FOR LIVE' To Benefit SWEET RELIEF & Check Your Head Podcast
The Music Community has lost several iconic figures from Michael Jackson to Chris Cornell. These losses have been felt on a global scale. Depression, Anxiety and Substance Abuse affect Rock Fans and Rock Bands alike. Alarmingly, the impact of these issues can be debilitating to the point of death or suicide. Money, Fame nor the Adulation from millions of adoring fans can lessen the impact of these devastating illnesses. In fact, though many fans would believe that these Rockstars have the ideal life, these factors can have the opposite effect of isolation, embarrassment and the fear of being ridiculed. These issues hurt deeply enough. Having your emotional state broadcasted as the big story on the news can be enough to put anyone over the edge.
The Rock Collective is a Community of mutually supportive Rock n’ Roll Bands and Artists who are committed to supporting each other and growing together. Our bands collaborate, share ideas, play live shows together and support each other through times of adversity. Many within our community have dealt with Depression and Anxiety and know firsthand how horrible it can feel. As a result, the Bands/Artists within The Rock Collective feel compelled to do what they can to help.
