As part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2016, Noisey are running series of short films about music and mental health.

In the first of their short films about music and mental health, Bill Ryder-Jones from The Coral and Rob Harvey from The Music both speak out about their experiences that affected them during their rise to fame in the 2000's.

Both had strikingly similar experiences of suffering from mental health problems at the peak of their careers, and in this short film they explain how the music industry both exacerbated their problems and helped them overcome their struggle.
