Music and Depression

Even though they immediately preface it with some ‘legendarily gloomy composers’ for whom it did not help, the overall article is interesting. It focuses on a study where adults who were given music therapy sessions showed fewer signs of anxiety and depression and that the effects were long lasting enough to be significant.

I’ve said before that music saves lives, although it sounds a little trite at times, I still believe it. Certainly, it can’t do it alone, and usually it is listening instead of creating, but we’re all humans and need certain things to survive.
