Mental Health Awareness Month


May is Mental Health Awareness Month

-- a time to highlight the importance of mental health, as well as an opportunity to cultivate a solid mental health practice.


In previous articles, we have shared ways that music and sound can be used to positively influence mental health and overall well-being.


For the month of May, we challenge you to spend a little bit of time each day tending to your mental wellness.


Join us for a mental health challenge and use the resources below to incorporate music and sound to develop a practice that feels right for you.
