Using Music for Mental Health Support
The Vegas Strong Resiliency Center invites all who qualify for its services to this free, online event—survivors of violent crime in Nevada, first responders in Southern Nevada, and anyone impacted by Route 91 (bereaved families, survivors, first responders, or otherwise impacted).
Board-certified and licensed music therapist Kayla Connick will provide music therapy techniques that can be used on a daily basis to help support your mental health, including songwriting, exploring the voice, breathwork, and listening exercises. Music is an accessible, safe medium that is helpful for processing difficult emotions and creates an outlet in challenging times. No musical experience is necessary.
Kayla Connick, LPMT, MT-BC, believes empathy is the driving force behind a beneficial therapeutic relationship and that music therapy focuses on the whole person’s strengths and unique needs. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy from Maryville University and is a licensed practicing music therapist in the state of Nevada.
In addition to this event, Emily Rawlings, LPMT, MT-BC, offers in-person and online music therapy sessions to those in the Route 91 community and first responders who have been approved for integrative services through the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. Click here to learn more.
