The musical community is uniquely positioned to elevate the conversation on mental health, as it has an unparalleled ability to connect to the hearts of others and catalyze change. Musical events strengthen community, build empathy, and most importantly have the capacity to inspire action. As the world takes the necessary precautions to combat COVID-19, members of the music industry have been faced with cancelled tours, festivals, and recordings, adding unprecedented financial and emotional stress to musicians’ lives as well. We’ve partnered with Sound Mind to amplify musicians’ voices as they speak openly about their mental health and how they have found healing through the power of music. There is no single right way to practice self-care; we encourage you to find your own creative outlet to aid in your mental health journey.
Sound Mind Live’s Come Together is a virtual music festival that will take place on 10/8 in celebration of World Mental Health Day on 10/10.
