Music therapy in mental health for illness management and recovery

There are numerous interventions available to music therapists to use with psychiatric patients, including songwriting and lyric analysis. Using an educational approach for illness management and recovery, music therapy interventions for psychiatric patients can be educational, therapeutic, and enjoyable. Various levels of structure can be used to ensure patient success, both musically and nonmusically. It is essential for the music therapist to make educational and therapeutic material explicit for patients so they are able to generalize knowledge and skills learned in music therapy to other aspects of their lives. Future research concerning how music therapy interventions may affect psychiatric patients’ ability to manage their illnesses and recover are warranted
