It’s a complicated and stressful world we’re all experiencing so you’d think talking to each other about our mental wellbeing would be top priority....sadly nothing could be further from the truth.
There’s a lot of fear, misunderstanding and stigma about mental health, so we keep quiet.
Something so important and we’re frightened to say anything ? ............ It just doesn't seem right!
As a community choir with roots in singing for mental wellbeing we know music can comfort and inspire.
We also know that feeling at ease about talking about your mental health is a good thing too.
We’ve been funded by Time To Change to spread the word and get people talking about mental health and put paid to stigma and myths about mental health issues.
After all - we all have physical health and we all have mental health and we need to look after BOTH!
For 18 months we held 10, free one day song writing workshops in the community, themed around mental wellbeing, led by our Musical Director Chris and facilitated by ichoir members - we called our project ‘Raise Your Voice’ - and people certainly did!
The workshops were lots of fun and people were wonderfully open and really expressed their thoughts and feelings.
Our 10 songs inspired by our lovely Liverpool community are now all done and dusted and ready for you to listen to and share - and our Raise Your Voice CD with all the songs on is available NOW!
