​Invitation to the "MUSIC - Supporting People in Depression" campaign

​Invitation to the
On October 10th, we celebrate World Mental Health Day. On this occasion, we invite choirs and conductors to the international educational and artistic campaign "Music - Supporting People in Depression". Applications by October 1st, 2023

The campaign aims to raise awareness of the disease depression and to encourage people struggling with this disease to take up activities in the form of singing in a choir as an auxiliary element in its treatment and prevention. Belonging to a social group, such as a vocal group, reduces the feeling of loneliness and allows you to feel the sense of creative involvement in joint artistic activities.

Any choir can join the action.

Action activities may include the following:

  • Concert
  • Holy Mass with the participation of the choir
  • Open trial
  • Singing for health - vocal workshops
A very important element is that a choir that volunteers to take part in the action contacts at least one psychotherapeutic facility operating in the area (it may be, for example, a therapist, psychologist, psychological counseling center, crisis center, etc.). Psychotherapy facilities, which will thus become your Content Partners, will receive the message of the main partner of the campaign - a list of experts from the National Conference I HAVE A VOICE, i.e. a movement represented by conductors, psychologists, psychotherapists, scientists, business people and voice rehabilitators. Specialists in this field will point out the benefits of group singing and ask therapists to encourage their patients to participate in choral concerts and choir rehearsals.


Events under the campaign should take place from October 7th to 15th, 2023.
We accept applications until October 1st, 2023.

A COMPLETE INFORMATION, as well as a link to registration, downloadable materials, and an archive from previous editions of the campaign are available on a website specially created for this purpose: https://chortownia.org/mentalhealth

The topic is so important that it needs to be dealt with, especially that the idea was appreciated by the European Choral Association, who helped us with a grant for its internationalization, because it perfectly fits to the priorities of this organization.

Therefore, we are waiting for your applications and unfailing creativity in preparing open rehearsals, singing, concerts and other forms aimed at supporting people fighting this terrible disease!
