Music is our voice
Music is a great way to help us maintain or improve our mood. Sometimes we have our music on shuffle â€“ happy to listen to whatever is selected, other times we choose music to enhance or improve a mood. Becoming conscious about our music listening can really help us when times are tough, or when we want to celebrate life. Explore all the youth created music playlists via the menu on the right.
Our featured playlist has been created by a group of young people who call themselves Mental Sounds; "We choose our music because it relates to us and how we are feeling. It cheers us up, helps us through tough times, helps us cry, it brings back memories. It helps us express our innermost thoughts and feelings."
One young person said:
"I listen to songs because they're good songs and they're fun. I listen to music I can relate to and it makes me keep going, to be who I am. and sometimes I just feel understood. When I want someone there for me, but i don't want t ask them, the song says it all. But not telling someone can also be frustrating."

Music is My VoiceÂ by Voices of the Young and Old
"Music has a powerful way to say our deepest innermost thoughts. Listening to beautiful music is like someone actually cares. Sometimes it also makes us feel better. But... be careful how you use it - makes sure you listen to a song that matches and relates to your mood"
