5/25/20-Music and Mental Health

Updated: Jul 31

Emily Ansari explores the connection between the comforting powers of music and refugees in this week's Article of the Week. Those that fled the civil war in El Salvador in the 1980s explained that music was "essential" for their mental health, and Ansari details their experiences and relationship to music. What I loved most about this article is that she then related it to what we are experiencing now, and how people are turning towards music during these uncertain times as a way to calm their nerves and help with their mental health. I think it is testimony to the strong emotional impact that music can have and its importance in our communities. Take the time to read this article!
