Musicians and doctors advocate music therapy to address mental health challenges

by Cai Wenjun


Local musicians and psychologists appeared on a livestreaming program on Thursday to promote a combination of medicine and music therapy for the treatment of mental health and psychological disorders.


At the China International Import Expo, pianist Kong Xiangdong and erhu (a Chinese two-stringed instrument) player Ma Xiaohui collaborated with medical specialists from Shanghai Mental Health Center to share their experiences and promote mental health education.


Kong, who suffered from depression for eight years, claimed that professional care and music helped him recover.


"After recovering from depression, I have dedicated myself to health promotion activities through music, which can spread care and love," he said on the show.


Niu Xiaona, a psychological therapist at Shanghai Mental Health Center, said music can provide people with power and support. It has played an essential role in medical and psychiatric treatment, with favorable clinical outcomes.
