INTRODUCING HOLDING
OUT FOR HELP MUSIC
FEAT. REUBEN STYLES
OF PEKING DUK

A first of its kind library of hold music featuring
tracks that turn hold time into help time.

“As someone who has lost a best friend, I can say first hand that Australia’s mental health problem needs both urgent and radical addressing.
Our mind is, without a doubt, our most important vessel in life. Sadly however, to see a psychologist, a “mind doctor”, is now nearly impossible. The shortage in doctors along with dreadfully long wait times discourages a lot of people altogether, and some that need it the most.
To be part of the Holding Out For Help campaign is an honour.”
— Reuben Styles
