Recommendations of psychological support are always made in the best interests of the contributor. It is not ethical to recommend that a contributor undergoes psychological support if this is unnecessary. Psychologists adhere to a strict code of conduct when working with clients (contributors), this is to ensure the safety of the client. We will not recommend psychological support if it is not deemed appropriate for the client. Psychological support will only be recommended where it has been identified as appropriate and necessary for the client.
Should contributors present with symptoms of mental illness at any point throughout the production process, they will be signposted to relevant services in their area for ongoing support.
