We all have mental health: sometimes it is 'good' health and sometimes it is 'ill' health.
Brass bands can have a massive impact on mental health in both positive and negative ways and I am championing the cause for better mental health support for all our brass band musicians.
Through talks, workshops, presentations, writing and practical resources I am working with organisations and individuals to promote better mental health in brass bands and showing you how you can become more aware, spot signs of mental ill health and support yourself and your musicians.
