Wellness for the Film Industry

Expanding on our extensive experience within the film industry acquired through the provision of COVID 19 supports, SMARTCARE are now providing wider wellness and screening services to film production crew.  Ensuring the health and wellbeing of film crew members, who by nature of their profession are transient within the wider industry, work arduously and often within stressful situations, is a company priority for SMARTCARE.

n February 2020, The Film and TV Charity published ‘The Looking Glass’ The-Looking-Glass-Final-Report-Final.pdf (filmtvcharity.org.uk) a report highlighting the results of a survey of the health and wellbeing of over 9000 workers in the UK Film and TV sector. The evidence was stark: • 87% of workers in the industry had suffered with mental and physical health conditions as opposed to just 20% in the general UK population. Factors which can further compound the health and wellbeing of crew include: work place stress, long working hours, poor diet, smoking, alcohol/substance misuse.
