Music can play a valuable role in recovery from mental illness. It can help to break down barriers and stimulate emotional responses. Music therapy can help a child or teenager to express themselves and communicate better, giving them confidence, improved self-esteem and help to create positive changes in behaviour.
Music therapy for children struggling with their mental health
Crossroads is one of Myisrael’s 18 adopted causes. They offer youths-at-risk an alternative to life on the streets and give them the tools to get their lives back on track.
Music therapy has been described as a ‘magic therapy’ by some of Crossroads’ teenagers. Through music, they feel different emotions and can express them more easily.
