1 December 2018 To 2 December 2018

Organising chair: Dr Niall Scott

Listening to and creating music has strong intuitive resonances with our sense of well-being and our mental health, and has a direct impact on our moods, motivations and creativity.

While the health benefits of music have been broadly recognised across various disciplines, professions and practices, this event offers an opportunity for a fully inclusive interdisciplinary exploration of music’s impact on the mental health of listeners, and the impact of mental health on the creation and performance of music.

By considering the relationship between music and mental health in this bi-directional manner, the event aims to foster a dynamic dialogue that will:

  • facilitate sharing of concrete knowledge and techniques for using music to address mental health issues;
  • support direct engagement between musicians and health practitioners;
  • assist professionals from diverse disciplines in identifying ways that music can be used to promote mental health in work environment;
  • support individuals seeking personal development by highlighting strategies to maximise the mental health benefits of music.

While the organisers welcome presentations on any aspect of music and mental health, the following topics have been identified as key areas of exploration for the event.

  • Mental health expression and experience in popular music
  • Music, alienation, order and disorder
  • Music, pain, loss and grief
  • Music related to specific mental health conditions
  • Music therapy and intervention: best practice, case studies of effective programmes, challenges for practitioners and opportunities for innovation
  • Catharsis
  • Music and mental health research
  • Practitioner perspectives
  • Medical/scientific perspectives on how and why music affects cognitive and neurological processes
  • Solfeggio and other systems of tonal therapy
  • Apps and business start-ups that facilitate use of music to promote mental health
  • Music and mental health of animals
  • Music and sports psychology
  • Music and the spiritual mind
  • Social media, networking and music
  • Case studies of how (un)healthy minds impacts the creation and performance of music
  • Use of music to address mental health issues in vulnerable communities (LGBTIQ, people with disabilities, the elderly, Indigenous people, religious and ethnic minorities, etc.)
  • Strategies for using music to improve mental health in schools, businesses and health and welfare initiatives sponsored by governments and non-governmental organisations
  • Identifying and overcoming challenges to using music to promote mental health
  • Using music to reduce the social stigma around mental health issues
