Join KEXP for Music Heals: Mental Health on Thursday, February 29th. We acknowledge the struggles of mental health and emotional well-being that so many of us deal with and how music and community, can really make a difference. From 7 AM to 7 PM PT, we’ll read your stories and play your requests. Send yours in to and then tune in on Thursday, February 29th to listen together. 

"Music has incredible power,” says KEXP Morning Show host John Richards. “I hear from listeners every day about a song or a lyric that helped them heal, process, grieve, or just find the strength to go on.”

Through the Music Heals series, KEXP uses curated music, interviews, listener stories and live events to help people in our community understand they are not alone. Music can provide comfort, validation, encouragement, consolation, perspective, catharsis, and community, and the Music Heals series explores how music can also heal our bodies and lift our spirits. Use the navigation below to explore the different topics.
