    In your opinion could music be used as a type of therapy for issues such as depression?
    If yes why do you think it isnt a mainstream therapy used instead of taking pills to try to make the issue better?

    You do know Music Therapy exists, right? Just checking because it's not clear from your post.

    There's also Art Therapy and Drama Therapy and Dance and Movement Therapy. I don't really know how people get referred to those services though, so I can't answer your question.

    I agree with the above poster the way you've worded the thread makes it sound like you don't realise it already exists...

    The NHS have a careers page dedicated to it: http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/explore...sic-therapist/
    There's even a national association called the BAMT: http://www.bamt.org/

    Whilst it's not as well publicised as say antidepressants or cognitive behaviour therapy, it is utilised. Most often within an inpatient setting usually as a ward based activity. The hospital where I work has a dedicated member of staff trained in art/music therapy and they work within the occupational therapy department :yes:
