              of people with severe mental health needs, through music therapy.
                       Some feedback from Soundwell’s participants:
‘I’m sure Music Therapy has been an important factor in my recovery from my recent illness’
   ‘I am able to work and communicate within a team and also I am able to actively listen to
  others. This I believe was developed through attending the group. Music was an important
                                   tool in this development’.

                                 Thank you for your support
