Sony Music Publishing has launched a program called Songwriter Assistance, which will provide its global roster of songwriters and composers with access to free, confidential counseling services and wellness resources.
Starting Feb. 1, Songwriter Assistance will offer 24/7 counseling support via global hotlines, as well as ongoing counseling services for emotional health matters such as stress, anxiety, depression, and family/relationship challenges.

“The importance of wellness cannot be overstated, and with songwriter assistance, we look forward to offering a whole new level of care and support,” said Jon Platt, Sony Music Publishing.
With Songwriter Assistance, Sony Music Publishing says that songwriters will also have unlimited access to customized resources for tackling daily responsibilities such as researching childcare and eldercare options, in addition to “navigating life transitions, co-parenting, budgeting for major life events, and more”. The new initiative follows the launch of Sony Music Entertainment‘s own wellness-focused program called Artist Assistance, in September.
