Music Therapy and Mental Health | Lucia Clohessy | TEDxWCMephamHigh

Better Brain, Better Game!

We listen to music to get pumped up about something, to find personal peace, to sympathize and allow our emotions an outlet. It makes sense that music therapy would help us to heal and thrive in the most difficult times of our lives. Lucia focuses on how music today and throughout history helps mental wellness. Lucia Clohessy is a professional singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and published poet from New York City, but true harmony occurs when Lucia is using her music to help others. A graduate of the Music Therapy and Psychology program at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Lucia hopes to one day open her own mental health and substance abuse treatment facility that incorporates alternative therapies in the process of healing. Lucia is presently pursuing her certification as a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor, and currently serves as a music therapy intern with the Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Additionally, Lucia is the co-founder of The Nicky Clohessy #18 Foundation, a non-profit organization that brings awareness to the prescription drug epidemic. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at x
