how can we sing our way to better mental health?
One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives.
50% of mental health problems are established by age 14 and 75% by age 24.
Our mission is to inspire a love of singing to improve mental health.
We are currently at the research and development phase of the charity, investigating how we can best support those experiencing loneliness, anxiety and depression. Therefore, we fully anticipate that specifics of what we do will change over time. However, we believe the pillars of what we do remain pretty consistent:
To inspire people in the UK, who are experiencing loneliness, anxiety and depression, join a choir or singing group
Support existing choirs and their members with additional mental health services, set up new choirs and act as a central source of information
Create engaging solutions to overcome any resistance to joining a choir
Promote the benefits of singing to choir members and the wider public through the media
Run fundraising performance events and design bespoke programmes for alternative audiences and/or organisations
Carry out on-going research on the benefits of singing, sharing and promoting the findings publicly
what we need
Our focus is on developing the proposition, model and finding partners from within the arts or health sector.
We are also looking for advisors, trustees, young people experiencing loneliness, anxiety or depression and choirmasters to help build a strong team.
