MUSIC INDUSTRY MENTORING IN HOSPITALS & COMMUNITY

WORLD’S 1ST RECORD LABEL FOR MUSICIANS WITH MENTAL HEALTH EXPERIENCE

About Our Work

Our evidence-based therapeutic approach promotes positive mental health for musicians through studio sessions, artist development, and live performance. Delivered by specially trained music industry mentors our programme offers a healthy, supportive, structured, professional experience opening pathways to mainstream opportunities.

Mental Health and Music

Music can play a valuable role in recovery from mental illness. It can stimulate emotional and aesthetic responses, develop creative, technical, social and vocational skills, improve expression, communication, confidence and self-esteem, and facilitate positive changes in behaviour and wellbeing.

Who We Are

The charity was set up in 1997 by a group of patients at Highgate Mental Health Centre in North London to provide music activities on the wards. We now work in locations across London and England in partnership with NHS, local authority and voluntary sector health and social care agencies and the music industry.
