Welcome To Darlington Mind

Music Therapy

"Rhythm connecting people"

We would like people with mental health problems to be creative and inspired through music.

Playing an instrument, singing or just listening to good music can lift people’s spirits and has been known to improve mental wellbeing.

The Darlington Mind Music Group meets every week and includes music appreciation sessions as well as creative music making.

We also access rehearsal studio space at the Forum in Darlington. This creates an additional dimension to the sessions and makes it possible to perform the songs we have practiced in a realistic environment.

As a group we have also performed live, providing entertainment at social events and BBQ’s. This really emphasises how much music can have a positive impact on people’s lives.

Comments and Testimonials

"I have benefitted greatly from joining the Mind music group in the summer of 2013. An interest in music and the opportunity to practice with other members of the group, together with the social interaction has improved my mental health by around 80%".

"The music group helps me so much, I love it and have so much more confidence now – so much so I’m using my confidence elsewhere as well and I’m a lot happier in myself – thanks."

"The music group is fantastic! I can’t wait for the next session."
