Mind the Music is a three year programme supporting young people with mental health issues, through music making.
As part of the programme, Community Music is offering a series of training sessions for music and arts leaders across London.
Anyone currently working with, or interested in working with, young people using the creative arts can benefit from this training.
This first day-long training session will be held on Friday March 9th, at the Brady Arts Centre, in Whitechapel, London.
The session will be led by Jo Stockdale from the Child Learning and Development Advisory Centre. Jo looks at how new neuroscientific research can support our practice as arts leaders, focussing on how the brain develops throughout childhood and adolescence, providing a basis for further understanding of different mental health conditions, which we will look at more in depth in future training sessions.
