Wellbeing

How are you feeling? Now more than ever there is a need to address the question of Freelancer’s well-being. FMTW cannot be a mental health service provider; however, below are some links for access to free and low-cost counselling services, some video resources, and links to organisations providing a range of services that may be of interest, such as peer to peer support schemes. This is a start, and we’ll be adding to it over the coming weeks, but in the meantime, we hope it helps.
