All Things Mental Health

For the last episode of this series, we have Tom Gulliver with us discussing the mental health benefits of music. Tom chats to us about all the music outlets he's been involved with at the University of York, including Band Soc, open mic nights at different colleges, as well as helping with tech at the Norman Rea Gallery through events such as A Multilingual Experience. Tom tracks his own journey as a musician with us, from being a part of the band Kräken, dealing with the anxieties of performing, to developing his own record label Lucky Boy Records. Tom chats about the mental health benefits of songwriting as a creative outlet, in particular how powerful it can be when songs resonate with the audience, helping them with their mental health too. We also discuss the power of the positive energy that arises from people coming together through music.
