This season, we are starting a new partnership with the geriatric psychiatry department of the University Institute of Mental Health in Montreal, where we will be offering concert-workshops to the hospital’s patients. The patients of the geriatric psychiatry department are followed for psychiatric illnesses (depression, anxiety, bipolar illness, psychosis, schizophrenia) and cognitive illnesses (dementia of all kinds).
Each month, these moments of music offered by our musicians will give a moment of rest to both patients and caregivers. In parallel to this new partnership, our monthly concert-workshops at the Montreal Detention Centre (Bordeaux Prison) will continue for a second year. We will also continue to give concert-workshops in health care settings in collaboration with La SAMS, after the holidays.
