4 Best Ways to Celebrate World Music Therapy Day on March 1st
Help Champion the Advocacy in Your Community
Music therapy may not be a familiar concept to many people, but it is recognized by health professionals as an effective tool to reduce stress, improve mood, and promote self-expression.
Music therapy has been very helpful for certain patients who are experiencing various challenges. For veterans and other individuals suffering from PTSD, it has been known to help deal with their trauma. For individuals suffering from behavior disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and substance abuse disorders, music therapy has become an effective option to provide a calm and stable medium to encourage concentration and improve cognitive function and confidence.
March 1st is observed as World Music Therapy Day to highlight the benefits that music therapy brings to patients. It is also a special day to celebrate the dedication of music therapists.
While the event was started by the World Federation of Music only in 2016, it is believed that the discussion on the positive impact of music on mental health patients dates back to the time of Plato and Aristotle in the 4th and 5th century BCE, and it spread across different cultures.
