There is a music mental health connection.

Tuning Into Your State of Mind: The Music-Mental Health Connection

Research indicates that listening to music can actually affect brain chemistry. Hearing certain tunes can affect dopamine (the “happy” hormone), oxytocin (the “love” hormone), and cortisol (the “stress” hormone). Mental health conditions can’t be healed with a single upbeat song, but music therapists suggest starting with songs that match your current emotional state. Then, to alter your mood, slowly shifting to more calming or positive music. The notes may carry your mood along with them and bring you to a healthier mental state.

Where do calls go?

Calls to numbers on a specific treatment center listing will be routed to that treatment center. Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) could be forwarded to SAMHSA or a verified treatment provider. Calls are routed based on availability and geographic location.

The helpline is free, private, and confidential. There is no obligation to enter treatment. In some cases, could charge a small cost per call, to a licensed treatment center, a paid advertiser, this allows to offer free resources and information to those in need by calling the free hotline you agree to the terms of use.
