Great to hear from one of our Chorus Award 2016 Highly Recommended choirs this week. Falkirk’s Mental Health Association (FDAMH) are inviting you to a singing event at the Forth Valley Royal, Larbert in the Atrium at 7pm on Wednesday the 5th of October with our Highly Commended Newcomer Choir “Freedom Of Mind” for the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival and World Mental Health day.
FDAMH developed their very first choir in February for FDAMH service users, volunteers and staff. Since February they have had over 20 people sign up to the choir and they continue to enjoy singing every week. The positive feedback from those involved has been overwhelming with many feeling uplifted and more connected with their community.
For many, singing in this choir has put them on the path to recovery and is bringing hope and happiness to those who are lacking in confidence and self-belief.
Since winning the award, the choir are now pushing themselves to take part in this singing event for the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival and will be supported by some individuals from other choirs in the community who would also like to advocate singing as a means of therapy.
