I have been involved with an incredible project in Georgia for the last six months. I have joined with other music and creative arts therapists who work at the state psychiatric hospital in Thomasville, GA, to help design and build an outdoor sound garden. I had not planned on announcing this so soon, but the proverbial cat is now out of the bag! The local CBS news station recently ran a story about our project! I look forward to sharing with you much more detail about the project as we move forward, but the basic highlights are covered in the news story. The hospital has already committed a significant donation to the project and I am submitting grant applications for the rest. The grant-writing experience has definitely been an eye-opening endeavor and I will likely share about that process in the future. In the mean-time, stay tuned for more updates, pictures and construction plans as we move forward with this unique and innovative use of music in the psychiatric setting! The news story on WCTV is here.
