This week I am taking a closer look at mental health, identity, addiction, loneliness and music. How do they all fit together? Associate Professor Genevieve Dingle PhD and I discuss the dynamics of social identity, its advantages and possible disadvantages and how to create positive social identities using the arts - like music and dance. A really interesting topic.
