Derbyshire Mind will be launching a new group in January called Sound Minds.

Sound Minds workshops are a set of 15 weekly music and visual art based sessions that are a great opportunity to boost your self-esteem and connect with others in a supportive, welcoming and playful musical environment. The sessions are based around exploring new and creative ways we can use music engagement to support our mental wellbeing.

Who is the group for? All sessions are open to adults (18+) who are experiencing common mental health symptoms such as low mood, worry and anxiety, stress, loneliness, and wish to improve their mental wellbeing.

Cost: All sessions are free (funded through our fundraising work)

Group Leaders: Sessions are run by the super friendly Iylla (Eye-lah), Expressive Arts, Health and Wellbeing student at the University of Derby.

Additional Support: One of our supportive Derbyshire Mind peer support volunteers will also be there to welcome and support you.

At your Own Pace: The group provides a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere, and all activities are optional. You can sit back and relax. Or have a chat with our Peer Support volunteer who is specially trained to listen and not try to fix.
