A Playlist for Mental Health – by Music Therapists

This ‘Music & Mental Health’ playlist has been specially curated by 18 Certified Music Therapists (MTAs).  This playlist is a short list of the most frequently selected songs chosen by our therapists and clients at JB Music Therapy (Calgary, Canada) to promote inspiration, motivation and comfort in between therapy sessions.  

This playlist is NOT a prescription for mental health. There is no one prescription for mental health, nor when using music.  Different needs, experiences, and cultural backgrounds will all play a part in our preferences and how music works therapeutically in our lives.  The work of a Music Therapist is to help you leverage music (including songs, tempo, use of voice, breathing, and instruments – to name a few) to achieve your desired goals and outcomes.  

Research shows that the right resources (music), with the right people in our lives (professionals and friends), can ease the burden and lead to better days.

I hope this playlist inspires you to create your own personalized ‘Music & Mental Health’  If you need a hand (or just need someone to be with you as you do it) do not hesitate to reach out to a Certified Music Therapist in your community.
