Our singing sessions are to help people feel better about themselves in all sorts of ways. They can help reduce stress, they can increase your confidence and they give you a chance to be with other people who will understand how you feel.
If you want, you can bring someone with you,
Anyone of 18 or over is welcome to come along. We especially welcome anyone who is a present or past user of Norfolk & Suffolk mental health services, their family, friends, carers, any support workers, and staff or anyone interested
Everyone is encouraged to join in and sing, but if this worries you, you can just enjoy listening to begin with.
You don't need any experience or talent, everyone can join in, whatever their voice is like. We do not have written music, everything is learned by listening and repeating.
Sing Your Heart Out also welcomes other people such as people with learning difficulties or mild dementia.
SYHO is primarily aimed at people who have experienced mental health problems, and may be finding life a bit of a challenge.
The songs we learn are usually quite simple and singers don’t need to be able to read music but we learn to sing in three or four parts and you need to feel comfortable with this.
If you are not sure if it is for you, come along and try!
We sing for a while, then we have a tea/coffee break, always with chocolate biscuits, then we sing a bit more.
There is no charge for coming, or for refreshments... though we do appreciate donations.
