Dr Paras Patel and Dr Angela Kennedy, Trauma Informed consultants, have worked with Prof. Nigel Osborne and his team at X-System (software that predicts our responses to music) and Dr Chika Robertson from the Music Mind Spirit Trust to collaborate with musicians to bring you to carefully formulated playlists to help promote your wellbeing and our connectedness with others.

This free online music event is focused around connecting with our humanity and uses a musical playlist devised by artificial intelligence to make you feel good and uses songs created by our artists. The chat will be facilitated by Mental health consultants. This event is open to all but particularly welcomes NHS staff and other key workers and people with lived experience of illness or adversity. The musicians will play their compositions live and participants will listen together and join in an online chat if they wish around the things that the music evokes for them. 

Running weekly on Thursday's at 19:00, the event will last about 40 minutes. Please try to stay until the end. 

Thank you Prof. Nigel Osborne and his X-System team and all the musicians. You can find more playlists devised to support us during times of adversity by changing our emotional states on this link.
