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 we have had over 20 people sign up to the choir and continue to enjoy coming each 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.
Our “Freedom Of Mind” had their first performance in June at the Kelpies which was extremely successful and won them their first award from Scotland Sings. We are now pushing ourselves to do a 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. This event will be to inform an audience of the massive positive effects singing can have on a person as well as to raise awareness of how to improve wellbeing, mental health and be involved in the community.
PLEASE NOTE: This event is not ticketed but it would be ideal if you could give us an indication of if you are coming in order for us to be able to accommodate seating requirements. You can do this by calling 01324 671600 or email email@example.com.
