DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM: Music is a powerful, non-threatening tool that can be used to help individuals who struggle with mental health issues. It can be used to explore personal feelings and therapeutic issues such as self-esteem or personal insight. It can help make positive changes in mood and emotional states. It can also give individuals a sense of control over life through successful experiences. During our time together we will explore music and the therapeutic benefits it has on the human spirit.
