National Concert Hall - Music In Mind Workshop at Gateway

Music In Mind is a programme of participative music workshops for people in the community living with Mental Health difficulties.  The focus is on participation and enjoyment.  Our vision is that anyone living with Mental Health difficulties should have the opportunity to participate in collective music making, and to experience the benefits that this can bring.

Music in Mind believe that participation in music has a powerful role to play in the area of Mental Health.  Music, in particular group singing, has been demonstrated to promote positive feelings, expectation and hope, self-belief, social support and networking, structure and organisation (Morrison & Clift, 2012).

Music in Mind opens the door to a world of social and community music making, develops individuals living with Mental Health concerns, and contributes to the national conversation surround Mental Health; a subject that has been brushed aside for far too long.
