Soundminds – The arts for mental health
Sound Minds is a mental health charity transforming lives through music, film and art. We are a thriving community bound together by creativity and a shared belief in mutual learning and peer support.
Our well equipped studios in Wandsworth are available for rehearsal, courses, practice, one-to-one tuition and art projects. A number of bands rehearse at our studios, including Gigantic Station, Bluesology, and the legendary reggae group The Channel One Band. The Sound Minds Community Choir also rehearse at a nearby community centre.
Sound Minds is also the base of the BaME service user group, Canerows who provide a range of peer support services, including ward visiting, tuition to forensic services, post discharge support and consultation. Also Mama Low’s Kitchen – a user led drop in.
