Singing in Groups reduces stress, anxiety and depression

Singing in groups can make you happier and reduce anxiety and depression, according to a new study.

The research by the University of East Anglia (UEA) in collaboration with the group Sing Your Heart Out has revealed that people who took part in a community singing group maintained or improved their mental health.

The combination of singing and socialising was found to be an essential part of recovery because it promoted an ongoing feeling of belonging and wellbeing.

Lead researcher Prof Tom Shakespeare from UEA’s Norwich Medical School said: “We found that singing as part of a group contributes to people’s recovery from mental health problems.

“The main way that Sing Your Heart Out differs from a choir is that anyone can join in regardless of ability. There’s also very little pressure because the participants are not rehearsing towards a performance. It’s very inclusive and it’s just for fun.”

The format is also different to a therapy group because there’s no pressure on anyone to discuss their condition.
