Ep 6 - Brass Banding in Lockdown - Anxiety and Supporting Better Mental Health
Today on the Brass on the Mind Podcast I’m talking about banding in lockdown and in particular dealing with missing the music which is good for our wellbeing and soul, missing the human connection and how to manage and support the anxieties that face us in the climate of a global pandemic. Now is a really important time to be aware of the signs of mental ill health, so I chat about some of the ways we can become more savvy about mental health. For details of my new online mental health awareness course visit www.modefor.co.uk Grab a cuppa and enjoy. *** The point of the Brass on the Mind podcast is to bring open and honest conversations about mental health and brass bands into the banding movement, so I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s instalment. We all have mental health, we just don’t always like to chat about the lows as much as the highs, but with open, honest and non-judgemental chat we can help create a supportive and understanding environment in our brass band movement and ultimately help, encourage and retain our musicians.
