Black Broadway for Black Mental Health

Music & Mental Health

Our Work

At Darkness RISING: Live, singers and musicians from the Black Broadway community sing inspirational cover songs. More than music, our nonprofit offers free wellness workshops, guest speakers, mental health educators, a Music & Mental Health Video Series, free/sliding scale resources and more for the Black community. Free mental health resource packets are provided at all events. This project is made possible by the Brooklyn Arts Fund from Brooklyn Arts Council, and Fractured Atlas.

Our Why

We believe music heals. Research shows the benefits of music therapy for depression, trauma, schizophrenia and more.

Music acts as a medium for processing emotions and grief, and can also be utilized as a calming agent for anxiety. Despite feeling lost or broken, music can provide the opportunity for expression and for experiencing safety, peace and comfort.

We partner with mental health professionals and use art as a medium where the intersection of mental health education and art collide.
