Adam Bambrough
Founder & CEO
(He / Him)

Adam is a former award-winning West End and touring theatre actor and director (2001-2013), who has lived with mental health issues (ADHD, depression, and anxiety) for much of his life.

He established Wellbeing in the Arts as a result of his own personal experiences, his detailed research into how Arts organisations can best support their staff, and his time speaking with thousands of Arts workers of all disciplines who are trying to maintain a career in the industry whilst battling mental health issues, often without the help they need.

Adam previously ran the Theatrical Guild, a theatre charity based in Covent Garden, London, for eight years, and is currently writing a book on mental health in the Arts whilst also studying to become a Counselling Psychologist.
