MMF NZ and Music Helps announce Wellbeing Seminars

Health and wellbeing are fundamental to music-making at all levels, but also across all areas of the industry – management, production, crew. And many in the music industry in New Zealand do not feel equipped or trained when it comes to wellbeing issues.

The key aims of the session is to improve the mental health and wellbeing literacy of music managers and self managed artists, to empower our community to better monitor themselves and to reach out and give practical support to those around them, and to impart a greater understanding of the framework of assistance and support that exists for people experiencing mental health and wellbeing issues.

Experienced MusicHelps counsellor and registered psychologist Grant Gunning will run the seminars and the key topics will be:

1. Identifying support networks for artists and managers – key relationships, support people and value/qualities each represents or provides

2. Understand group dynamics – normalising the ups and downs of bands/creative projects and the life-cycle of groups

3. Recognising indicators of concern – recognising when mental/emotional life or wellbeing is suffering in managers and artists and how to articulate this

4. Protective factors: what are the risks and how can protective measures be put in place

5. Mental health and wellbeing support in the NZ health system: what happens if you or your client engages with the NZ health system

6. Locating resources and avenues of assistance– where to go, who to call, avenues of support and intervention.

New Reports: Flood Risk From Rain And Sea Under Climate Change

One report looks at what would happen when rivers are flooded by heavy rain and storms, while the other examines flooding exposure in coastal and harbour areas and how that might change with sea-level rise.

Their findings show that across the country almost 700,000 people and 411,516 buildings worth $135 billion are presently exposed to river flooding in the event of extreme weather events...

There is near certainty that the sea will rise 20-30 cm by 2040. By the end of the century, depending on whether global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, it could rise by between 0.5 to 1.1 m, which could add an additional 116,000 people exposed to extreme coastal storm flooding. More>>
