The Highs & Lows is a low barrier mental health choir. They provide choral singing opportunities to those who with lived experience of mental illness. They recognize that there are numerous barriers that prevent individuals from engaging in community activities and are committed to providing low barrier participation. For a lot of us, singing boosts our mood and gives us an opportunity to connect with people in a fun and supportive environment. Singing is an outlet that allows us to be who we are without judgement. We can be social, challenge ourselves, and feel a sense of achievement. This is extremely important as some mental health conditions can make it hard to participate in social activities and interactions. But Highs & Lows agree, singing with others and having fun is their top reasons for being part of the choir.
