Tonic Music for Mental Health

Tonic Music for Mental Health is a charity based on the south coast of England. We promote good mental health through music. We already have a proud history and have helped many isolated and vulnerable people in our community.

Tonic Music for Mental Health runs two programmes.

Recovery Through Music:

​The Recovery Through Music programme provides safe and supportive environments for people to come together, learn new skills, get creative, and make new friends.

The free-to-attend programme comprises a Music Jam and Vocal Groups. We support people both within and outside of mental healthcare services. Tap here to get involved!

We also collaborate with the NHS and local authorities to provide music workshops further afield. ​Tonic services complement the traditional support provided by public sector mental health services.

Tonic Rider:

The innovative Tonic Rider programme promotes good mental health in the music industry by providing bespoke training and support to music industry professionals, both remotely and at venues.

Many people working in the music industry experience mental health issues. They can be brought on by the highs and the lows, the touring, the late nights, and the lifestyle. The industry can be volatile and competitive, with no financial security. This leaves music industry professionals vulnerable to developing mental health issues.

Tonic Rider addresses this by providing mental health-related training and support, tailored to the music industry. Our training and support include a Peer Support Group, Mental Health First Aid training, mental health guides, Tonic stands at festivals and events, and various other groups, workshops and courses.
