WACIT South America: Child mental health user dancing engagement in Brazil

The music and various dances were to be expected in Brazil! What was so positive to discover was their creative use in engaging children and youth attending a mental health service in the State of São Paulo.

Following on from the earlier workshop, it was delightful to see the staff adopt a different role; and the children to respond and enjoy themselves. The Coletiva de Musica band, an NGO of musicians and ex-service users, seemed to achieve a lot more than some user committee meetings I had attended in the past.
