Singing for Health
Singing for Health is a programme developed by More Music to help improve mental health and wellbeing. More Music will establish two new Singing for Health projects in Morecambe, Lancashire, designed to bring people together in safe, creative and fun environments. More Music will deliver two Singing for Health projects: the Chameleon Choir for young people referred through the local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) network and Bay Medical Group; and the Seagull Café, for older adults referred through the Bay Medical Centre.
Medical practitioners will refer people to the projects with the aim of building their resilience, developing their social connections, and enhancing their mental wellbeing. They will also consider prescribing singing to help tackle long–term, life-limiting health conditions including respiratory illness and dementia.
