A Hull homeless centre is using music therapy to help their clients overcome mental health issues.

The Crossings centre is promoting the service as part of Mental Health Awareness week.

During the sessions, the clients are encouraged to listen to music as a way of dealing with their own experiences.

Riverside Area manager Mark Cook explained the ways it helps their service users:

“The people here are enduring chronic, on going mental health issues. These sessions are used for relaxation, but also for building confidence that they can take on to other things.

“People get tagged with mental illness, and that often sticks. I think as people are more visible- doing well, doing normal things, enjoying music and concerts- that stigma will disappear.
