May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and Susan G. Komen Missouri hosted a live event in the virtual space about the power of music to improve our mental health. The one-hour event featured two-time breast cancer survivor Amy Camie, a certified clinical musician, professional harpist, speaker, composer, recording artist and author. Her music is used in hospitals, cancer centers, hospices, and nursing homes as well as for general relaxation and stress reduction.
Amy shared a live performance of several of her inspired compositions on the harp, interspersed with stories and insights about her journey with breast cancer and the therapeutic role music can play in our lives. She explained the concept of Conscious Self-Care and share what research tells us about the healing power of music.
