Breaking down barriers

Rick from Heroes' Voices has been coming to lead music groups in our inpatient mental health unit weekly for the past year and it’s been a delight working with him!

Veterans have brought up his group in our focus group several times as one of the best things we’re doing in the unit.

I have personally watched veterans who are depressed and speak very minimally and don’t participate in other groups in the unit, come to the group and burst into song.

In between songs and after the group, it’s great to see them chatting with other veterans. Music is so powerful in breaking down barriers!
