How dance can help with mental illness
Breakdance? Belly dance? Ballet? Ballroom? Doesn’t matter – the results are in, and be with a pair of two left feet or otherwise, dance has been proven to improve your overall mood and your mental health. A meta-analysis of 23 international studies on the effects of dancing, reported in The Arts in Psychotherapy magazine, concludes that dancing has a positive effect on the prevention and treatment of anxiety and depression, but it is also more likely to be voluntarily continued by participants. Further, practices like mindful mediation have been proven to help fight depression, but dance continues to show decreases in stress and depression, making it an even more important element of a student’s mental health toolkit.
I AM INVISIBLE BULLYING & SUICIDE has partnered with the community and several music studios and artists to give our youth access to the art of music.
