Do believe that one song can truly support you on your mental health journey? This episode will show you that it is possible and true.
I invited Joseph to share his story on today’s episode, which dives straight into his mental health journey. He talks about his personal experiences through which he put together his own toolkit and how music plays its part in all of it.
How one tragic moment sent him a clear message on what he needed to do next and how that in itself propelled him onto a journey of connecting and supporting others who struggle with their mental health.
And of course, I asked how music played a part on his own health journey, how he uses it and why, plus what band had a massive impact on him…and he might have thrown a little challenge in there for me!
Come and join us on this inspiring episode around mental health, music and some fun bits, too!
