It was Canadian Mental Health Week‘s 66th year and we thought we’d put a spotlight on songs that talk about the challenges of maintaining mental health.
This year’s hashtag is #getloud.
For this special show, we had guest host Adi Aman from Beige Shelter, and four songs that talk about mental health.
We talked about:
- Beige Shelter’s mental health advocacy song, Light Your Way
- Song Meanings, a great site to see others interpretations of popular songs
- the role of music and art in mental health
- Loving Vincent
- Oliver Sacks and his work with Alzheimer patients and the power of music
