Singing in groups could lower anxiety and depression. New research from a university in the UK and a community singing group called Sing Your Heart Out, looked at how singing in groups helped mental health. Researchers followed participants in free weekly singing workshops for six months. They found that singing in groups helped people recover from mental illness. It also helped people feel valued, lifted their mood, and increased their confidence.

The lead researcher said singing in a group helped people recover from mental health problems. He said participants reported positive effects on their mental health because of singing in the workshops. For some people, it was a key part of their recovery and well-being. The researcher said some participants called the workshops a life saver and that they saved their sanity. He said: "The key thing for everyone was [the workshops] induced fun and happiness."
