Overview This survey was designed to give an overview of the effect that being in brass bands can have on mental health. The survey was completely anonymous and results have been collated in this report with a view to a greater understanding of the current position of the mental health of musicians in brass bands and to see if there is a need for a mental health provision in the brass band movement for dealing with issues from nerves and anxiety to panic, pressures and depression. The research has stemmed from a 2016 survey into the effects on mental health in the wider music industry, an interest based on my own personal experiences of being in the brass band movement, the effect this had on my own mental health, my coaching work surrounding performance techniques and anxiety, my training as a Mental Health First Aider, combined with a general population wide rise in mental health issues. The invitation to complete the survey read: “Thank you for helping with this survey into mental health in brass bands.
