A very warm welcome to our website
We are a music organization based in Chelmsford, Essex in The UK using the power of music to help with people's mental health and wellbeing. This is done by holding music events online and in venues and other projects such as DJ/Music workshops. By breaking down the barriers and stigma behind mental health and creating fun, informative, friendly and safe event environments we allow everyone to have a voice and support the cause even if they find it difficult to talk about their struggles, people are able to use music as an outlet. DJs/Volunteers/Venue staff all have a creative platform to express their support for the cause. We also signpost anyone who needs help to relevant services.
Music Unity For Mental Health was nearly 8 years in the making, from a little idea to now being realized,
Much of this will be funded by the events we will be holding and also collaborations with other promoters in the area and further afield, Having already held our first 2 Hard Dance launch events in the Summer of 2019 and our first Emotional Response Trance event in the Winter of the same year where we raised over £550 for the charity, Mind and our Emotional Response stayathome Spring Trance Party, May 2020 where our community raised over £800 for the charity, Young Minds. Our first Techno event in August 2020 raised over £400 for charity and more recently over £900 for The Mix in 2021 at the second Techno event working alongside Dark Matter London.
later in December 2021 we will be back at our base venue,VR5 The Loft at EGG London for the next installment of our Emotional Response Trance Parties.
Our first DJ workshops were due to start in May 2020 with a Beginner DJ group workshop being run by our friends, On The Rise DJ Academy in London but these will be held later in the year.
We also encourage volunteering at our events and projects to bring people closer to the music and to help anyone struggling...we have had many people already volunteer with us and it has helped them massively.
As you can see, Music Unity For Mental Health is not Genre specific so look out for other events and projects with varying genres in the future.
All of our profits will go towards our DJ/Production workshops and other projects and more events to keep raising awareness and funds for outside charities and organisations.
Music has the power to heal, be it just listening on your own at home or going to a gig or festival or dancing at a club night with 100s or 1000s of people..we want to go a step further and give people the chance to be a part of the music, that may be learning to play an instrument, being taught how to DJ, record a track at a real studio, shadow a sound engineer or lighting designer at a gig...We also encourage people to volunteer for us which allows them to work with us and get properly involved in all aspects of an event....all this helps to promote better mental wellness.
Through our many years working within many aspects of music and our ouwn personal journeys, we are drawing on all that experience now to help people with their mental wellness. We all know how much music has helped so now it is time to give something back. Professional help is necessary but having a support network is a no brainer when it comes to mental health. Friends/Family/work colleagues etc all play an important part in the well being of someone who is struggling....Music can also play a role in that support and that is our main aim....It is our mission.
So, thank you for visiting our page, and an even bigger thank you if you liked it/shared it and are following us. Please let your friends and family know about us.
All of that will be a massive help to so many people.
