Emotional health is an important component of mental health. According to the CDC, “mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act.” Now, brands and organizations are pioneering emotional health practices within their own communities, lending space for better practices, support and acceptance.
Sony Music Publishing is promoting emotional health with a free counseling and wellness program for its songwriters this year. Songwriter Assistance is a new service that the brand’s songwriters and composers can access for confidential counseling and wider resources. Chairman and CEO Jon Platt said, “The importance of wellness cannot be overstated, and with Songwriter Assistance, we look forward to offering a whole new level of care and support.” The program, which starts February 1st, will include 24/7 hotlines, emotional health services, and assistance services for lifestyle stresses such as life transitions, co-parenting, long-term budgeting tactics, and more.
