PRS Members’ Fund has announced a new partnership with Music Minds Matter, Help Musicians’ dedicated mental health service for the whole music industry, to reinforce the mental wellbeing support available to the PRS creative community.

The 24/7 free and confidential support line is available to the entire music industry and every call is answered by a trained counsellor who can provide immediate support and direct to further help if needed. Other services, such as one-to-one counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy, are also available to PRS Members depending on membership status.

PRS Members seeking support should call Music Minds Matter on 0808 802 8008. Online resources, personal stories, guidance from professionals and further organisations offering support can be found at

For more information, contact or call 020 3741 4067. All information is treated with the strictest confidence. 

Dr Pete Glenister, PRS Members’ Fund trustee says, 'Music Minds Matter will help point PRS members towards appropriate treatment and support and if necessary, fund that treatment and support. We hope this collaboration will give members the tools they need to help themselves going forward.'

Sarah Woods, Interim Chief Executive, Help Musicians says, 'We are so pleased to collaborate with the PRS Members’ Fund to ensure Music Minds Matter’s therapeutic support is funded for members seeking help. Sadly, we’re seeing rising need for mental health support at scale in the music industry, illustrating the importance of this partnership to ensure people get the help they need. We would like to extend our thanks to the PRS Members’ Fund for working with us to make a difference to the mental health of those working in the music industry.'
