Mental Health

Music Heals: Mental Health is a day of programming dedicated to calling attention to the public health crisis that is depression and anxiety, and exploring how music can help us know we are not alone.

“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. We hope that Music Heals: Mental Health can help listeners living with mental illness know that there is a whole community out here that cares about them. You’re not alone.”
