Skeleton Park Arts Fest is wrapping up the first of two exciting music and mental health program sessions for youth at Pathways To Education (#263 Weller Ave), called “Musicalize Your Mental Health.” In an effort to help make mental health education more accessible, “Musicalize Your Mental Health” uses music as a metaphor at weekly jam sessions. Led by mental health worker, Rich Tyo, musician Daniel Chalmers, and Skeleton Park Arts Fest’s Greg Tilson, this program combines education, discussion, music-making and song-writing as a new approach to learning about mental health.
The second session of Musicalize Your Mental Health gets underway on January 17, 2017.
