When I’m with the Gospel Choir I feel genuine happiness

This week is World Mental Health week and there has been lots of discussion about how arts and creativity can be a massive help to those struggling with mental health issues.

Inclusivity is central to everything at the Crosby based charity, In Another Place, which is a place where people can come and feel free to be themselves. They have found that asking people to help by performing or creating props enables them to break out of their shells and really begin enjoying life. They have seen this in their Gospel Choir too, one of their choir members Charlotte Jenner (19) said this:

“Before joining the Gospel Choir, I struggled to leave the house because of my depression. Singing has always been a way to express myself and the chance to do something I love has given me such a boost. When I’m with the Gospel Choir I feel genuine happiness.”

Charlotte is one of 40-60 of the Gospel Choir who will be performing in concert on the 14th October at Merchant Taylors Boys School in Crosby at 2:30pm and 7pm. This concert will not only include their inspiring choir and their impressive 11 foot Giant Puppets but will also have dances from the unique and wonderful groups New Directions and Divine Days. This concert is not to be missed and it could give you the boost you need. At £6 for adults and £3 for children this is an absolute bargain and is bound to be an uplifting event. Whether there is someone you could bring who is struggling with mental health or whether you just want to come yourself they look forward to seeing you there.
