Reports an evaluation of two pilot singing for health groups run by the music and education charity More Music in Morecambe, UK. One group involved older people and a second young people with experience of mental health challenges. The groups were set up in partnership with a local GP practice and a local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) to explore the value of the arts in addressing health inequalities in mental health in Morecambe. Qualitative methods were employed and showed positive benefits for members of both groups. Emerging questions are identified to be addressed in further research.
