Project Tune Your Mood® aims to

…promote connection, help-seeking and healthy music engagement.

You are probably aware that young people who have emotional, mental and learning struggles find it difficult to engage with school and the community. Many are at risk and/or likely to be disengaged from school and life. Unfortunately they often do not seek the right help when needed.

young people’s natural resource, can be one of the best ways to make connections
with them.
