Meet the new social enterprise battling poor mental health within the performing arts industry

Cherri On Top want to boost industry support and opportunities for performers. 

It's no secret that mental health issues are rife in the music and entertainment industry, with new findings from the Working in the Australian Entertainment Industry: Final Report highlighting the overwhelming prevalence of the issues performers are faced with. To help combat these frightening statistics, new social enterprise Cherri On Top wants to create better outcomes for performing artists by offering industry support and opportunities. 

The report found artists are twice as likely to attempt suicide compared to the general community, 15.5% more likely to be addicted to alcohol or drugs and 40.3% more likely to suffer from mild to severe anxiety. The founders of Cherri On Top believe these overwhelming figures stem from a lack of industry support and toxic culture within the performing arts scene. Set to launch next week, the organisation will create opportunities for performers to protect and promote their own mental and emotional wellbeing in a bid to reduce these numbers.

Cherri On Top's Snake Oil Cabaret launch party will be jam-packed with burlesque and musical comedy. The show will see the Figjam Siblings, Cherri and Hannibal, seek to treat ailments of all shapes and sizes with their toolkit of questionable cures in what promises to be a whimsical affair.

​The Cherri On Top launch is happening at 24 Moons Bar, Northcote on Thursday December 20 and Friday December 21. Tickets are on sale now. If you are struggling with mental health and need to speak with someone, you can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.
