We want to learn if music helps people who hear voices.

Through conversation about music and mental health, questionnaires, computer games, and group music sessions, we hope to understand the impact music has on all of us.

Belief Lab Team

During the course of this study, there will be 4 weekly group music sessions. Each participant will be randomly assigned to one of the following groups:

  1. Song-making in a group
  2. Karaoke
  3. Listening to your own playlist
  4. Listening to someone else’s playlist

In addition to these music sessions there will be questionnaires, computer games, and interviews that will be completed before and after. During the interviews, participants will be asked to talk about their music and voice-hearing experiences.
