Has your child or pupil’s mental health been affected by lockdown?
If they are experiencing anxiety, show signs of feeling low or socially withdrawn then music can really help. Quench Arts’ Wavelength project has been running in Birmingham and Solihull for 5 years with a proven track record of making a positive difference, connecting young people with others going through similar experiences through the shared interest of music.
Some fantastic music has been created too – check it out here.
Quench Arts is currently accepting referrals for this FREE project, open to young people aged 12-18. We can work with young people on an early intervention basis, or those already receiving support from CAMHS services or with a mental health diagnosis.
Wavelength participants receive:
- One to one sessions with professional, mental health first aid trained musicians, creating original songs and music
- Group music and songwriting sessions, giving the chance to connect with other participants
- Recording opportunities, including contributing original music to a project CD
- Social events and performance opportunities
Currently, we are giving young people the option of engaging online via Zoom or through individual and small group face-to-face sessions but will be steered by Government guidance and each young person’s needs and wishes.
The project is supported by BBC Children in Need, Birmingham & Solihull Music Education Hubs, Forward Thinking Birmingham and Solar mental health teams.
