#Resources for Events and Festivals

There are several resources and services available to event and festival organisers; here are just a few that we've worked with:

  • Concert Care can assist you to ensure safety support crew are available with trained professional social workers, counsellors, nurses, doctors and mental health peers, who specialise in harm reduction and creating emotionally safe, kind, judgement free and inclusive spaces for all.
  • Support Act develop and implement a range of life-saving mental health prevention, education and training programs, such as Mental Health First Aid Training, Press Play, Workplace Wellbeing Check-Ins plus On My Mind and Yarning Strong open access webinars. 
  • LEWP (Live Event Wellbeing Program) provides psychological safe spaces and social / emotional support to help build community spirit, wellbeing, inclusion and cohesion at any live event. LEWP has provided support on national tours around Australia.
  • Chaplain Watch and Chill Out Zone: Recovery and First Aid for Entertainment Precincts.
  • MATE Bystander, an education and intervention program teaching us all to be leaders in the prevention of violence and problematic behaviour.
  • Hi Ground. education and harm minimisation. 
  • Arts Well Being Collective, a guide to help you in the intensity of festival delivery.

This is a growing list of resources—community contributions are welcome and encouraged.
