Mind the Music: Supporting An Emotionally Healthy Brain For Creative Arts Leaders
Mind the Music is a three year programme supporting young people with mental health issues, through music making.
As part of the programme, Community Music is offering a series of training sessions for music and arts leaders across London. Anyone currently working with, or interested in working with, young people using the creative arts can benefit from this training.
This first day-long session, which takes place on March 9th 2018, is led by Jo Stockdale from the Child Learning and Development Advisory Centre. She will help us to understand how the brain develops throughout childhood and adolescence, providing a basis for further understanding of different mental health conditions, which we will look at more in depth in future training sessions.
