UpBEAT! is a soundLINCS service to support the health and wellbeing of the community, for people with mental illness.

Health Care Practitioners and/or Social Prescribers can 'Tap Into' the service, and refer with confidence.

This is good for wellbeing because

  • As music is a strong cognitive stimulus, it is ideal for social engagement, mental health, strengthening the brain's executive function, reducing stress, depression, dementia and making people feel good!
  • It is a chance to bring people together to explore their interests in music, which helps to reduce social isolation and loneliness.
  • It can help increase musical confidence, which helps builds confidence in other aspects of life and is a great boost.

The UpBEAT! sessions for me and my husband are lovely. We look forward to the singing sessions as we find it so relaxing, to have the fellowship of others and to have the feeling of our own community get together, being able to have fun and a laugh especially when we get it wrong! The music facilitator keeps us on track. He is lovely and plays the guitar for us to keep in tune.
