Worldwide, it is estimated that approximately 450 million people have a mental health problem. In the UK, one in four people will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, and the financial impact of poor mental health has been estimated at £100 billion in the UK .
Currently, provision of music therapy is uneven across the UK and people are not always able to access the support they need. Many more people affected by mental health problems could benefit from music therapy if music therapy services are supported to grow and expand. Music therapy is an effective psychological therapy in supporting and enabling people with mental health problems to manage their condition.
