From February the 2nd, 2021, Mid-Kent Mind will be launching a nine-week pilot ‘Singing For Wellbeing’ course designed to bring people together to embrace the benefits that music therapy can have on both our mental health and our wellbeing.
The group will be delivered via video conferencing platform ZOOM, and hopes to provide people with a safe and welcoming space where they can express themselves through song. Each week, the group will get to choose from different songs and make suggestions for the feel good tracks which they would like to sing along to for the week.
The group has been inspired by many studies, such as this one from Oxford University, which highlight the benefits of singing as a group on our mental health. It is our hope that we can recreate similar benefits in a virtual medium – providing people with a safe space to come together and embrace an activity which has proven psychological benefits.
The group has been funded through Live Well Kent – meaning that the service will be open to Live Well clients. We are also trialling a 9-week pilot programme which will mean you can access the group without being registered with Live Well Kent, although you will need to get in touch with our organisation to book a new-to-Mind appointment, which will allow you to access this group.
If you are already registered with Live Well Kent then you do not need to register here.
You will need to book a new-to-Mind appointment to access this group.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07534 044513 to book your appointment.
