Music Minds is a 10 week programme targeted at young people (KS3 & KS4 students) in mainstream schools.

For young people experiencing stress, anxiety and mental health problems, getting help before the age of 14 is crucial. Yet less than half of young adults with these problems get the support they need – often because they feel ashamed about their feelings.

Music can provide a safe environment to tackle this issue, a form of self-expression and understanding which our evaluations are showing, is proving effective as a means of building confidence and self-esteem, and developing resilience and coping strategies.

Our highly skilled music leaders work closely with school pastoral staff to ensure that Music Minds is available to young people with significant & emerging mental health problems and that the programme is tailored to their needs and interests. The programme can include the following:

  • Playing in bands
  • Instrument tuition
  • Singing and song-writing
  • Weekly group music sessions
  • One-to-one music mentoring sessions
