Tonic Music for Mental Health is a not-for-profit organisation based in Southsea, established in 2012.
Tonic offers people opportunities to take part in relaxed and informal groups to learn skills such as music theory, technique, repertoire development, stylistic awareness, achieving a good tone, overcoming nerves and anxiety, performance technique and making practice productive and beneficial.
The support Tonic offers is designed to increase confidence, reduce isolation and promote individual recovery through relaxed and informal music-based support. We encourage open discussions about mental health and promote peer support and friendships beyond the groups. In the current climate of austerity measures and government cuts, services available to people with mental health problems (particularly within the arts) are too often limited and hard to access. We aim to support people who may already be receiving input from mental health services and those who have not had any previous contact to provide an inclusive support network to help people in their recovery.
The Key is a North East based charity which exists to inspire belief in young people. For 25 years, we’ve had a strong track record for making a positive impact upon the lives of some of the regions most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people by providing them with the opportunities they need, and the support they deserve, to develop important personal and social skills by engaging them in The Key Framework.
When young people feel restricted ‘The Key Framework’ is the spark to ignite their passions and inspire them through the power of possibilities. We fight against telling young people what to do, and instead provide a framework to change the way they look at their future. We promise to help them discover what they are capable of and build the drive and determination to do something meaningful with it.
