This is me: Exploring how inclusive music workshops can support mental health and quality of life in autistic children and young adults

Chief Investigator: Dr Grace Thompson
Associate Professor & Head Of Music Therapy
Melbourne Conservatorium of Music

This project examines and evaluates the benefits of group music making on the mental health and quality of life of participants from three different age groups of upper primary school aged children (year 4 and 5), secondary school aged children, and young adults between the ages of 18-25 years.

This participatory project will co-design and deliver an innovative creative arts music program aimed at improving wellbeing outcomes in autistic children and young adults; build and share knowledge, while engaging the community by sharing the results through a symposium to facilitate further dialogue with the stakeholders.
