Music and Mental Health

Liverpool Philharmonic and Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust have been working in partnership for 11 years, delivering programmes in Mersey Care in-patient settings and the local community, targeted at service users, their families, carers and Trust staff using music for mental health.

The programme supports people in Liverpool and the wider city region living with a range of mental health needs and over the 14 years 14,000 service users and their families and carers have participated.

The programme creates pathways and progression routes including independent visits to Liverpool Philharmonic and sign-posting to other activities. We deliver a range of activities within Community settings, including Mersey Care’s expanding Life Rooms facilities.

Sessions and activities include: high quality music making, informal adult learning opportunities, composition and song writing, improvisation, participant-led group performances, visiting musician performances, Recovery College courses including singing and music appreciation, and employability opportunities and skills development. The programme also includes supported concert and rehearsal visits to Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
