Everyone is Music
Ep 06 Stuart Mills and The Noisy Brain
This week in the UK it's Mental Health Awareness Week and I am joined by Stuart Mills, creator and manager of the Noisy Brain.
The Noisy Brain is a rapidly growing Online community for those with mental health issues wishing to find a form of expression and an outlet for their feelings through writing. The community then invites musician to create songs/soundscapes and musical/lyrical collaborations with those writings, some of which remain anonymous.
This is a wonderful space with so much potential for both creativity and healing and I was immediately drawn to the Noisy Brain when I stumbled upon it whilst scrolling on Instagram. Stuart is incredibly passionate about raising the profile of mental health issues and it is frustrating that there is still negativity around this important issue.
I know through my own experiences how powerful music and song can be in transcending the troughs of poor mental health and I hope that you will want to know more about The Noisy Brain and ultimayely help spread this important piece of mental health infrastructure.
