Well being and mental health
“Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” – Elton John
Well being and mental health – music for your mind
Musical intervention has been proven to have a range of benefits for mental health. Music is often a collaborative event allowing a range of people from different backgrounds with differing abilities to come together and share their love for music. This brings with it feelings of inclusion and reduces social isolation which can often occur. Music can be different things to different people. It may be a memory for those who have a diagnosis of Dementia, It can be a calming effect for a child with autism or it can be the key to unlock creativity and self expression for someone with a physical disability. Music evokes positive emotions and experiences which increases mental well-being.
