#7 Make Some Noise
Make Some Noise is a podcast exploring creativity, self expression and the connection to mental well-being. In times gone by creativity was an integral part of community life: we sang, we danced and we created (weaving baskets, creating costumes, etc) and these days it’s an after thought. Something we do if and when we finish everything else on our to-do lists.
Karly Nimmo is setting out to change that. She wants to bring what is seen as ‘frivolous’ and ‘indulgent’ to the forefront. Make it a priority. In Make Some Noise Karly explores whether there are legit links between how we live today and the epidemic levels of mental health issues (primarily depression and anxiety) we are currently experiencing. Make Some Noise speaks with professionals in the mental health space; psychologists, psychotherapists, art and music therapists. Plus stories of real life stories of how self expression can play an important role in improving mental wellbeing.
The show is a mix of personal storytelling, expert knowledge of how the brain functions and practical tips to help navigate mental health.
