Toolkit on supporting sex workers' mental health and well-being

The European Sex Workers’ Rights Alliance is proud to launch its first toolkit as #ESWA: an advocacy toolkit for sex workers’ rights activists on supporting mental health and well-being in our communities.


This tool kit was developed as part of the pilot program aimed at supporting the mental health of sex workers. With the support of ILGA-Europe, ICRSE (now ESWA) offered a series of workshops and events to give sex workers’ activists in Europe and Central Asia an opportunity to discuss issues related to mental health, learn how to identify and address mental health crises in our community and support one another.


The tool kit offers practical advice about mental health and mental health crises as well as a list of replicable activities from sex worker-led organisations. The examples of best practices showcased in the tool kit are of different scales and require little to subsequent budget to meet the needs of various organisations.

The toolkit is available below in English, Russian, French and Spanish. 

The toolkit was launched during the event organised by #ESWA and National Ugly Mugs on the topic of Sex work and Mental health. You can rewatch the entire webinar here.
