We have had a lot of things going on this year with Music Over Mind. We'd like to share them with you now! So, here's a list of some of the things we have done this year!
UNC Wilmington Intern Begins Working With MOM – In August, Ashley Jerread, began working as the first intern with Music Over Mind in order to assist with outreach events and behind the scenes work to keep our organization up and running. Insert brief sentence about your internship program.
NightSound Recording – This is an update regarding our agreement with Nightsound studios. We have been able to record one of our sponsored clients at this recording studio. We are now in the process of creating a promo video, to help promote a fundraising campaign to fund future artist recordings. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for updates regarding this video.
UNC Wilmington Human Behaviors Class – In October, Dave Binanay spoke with a class titled Human Behaviors in the Social Work Field. He was able to discuss his story with the students, as well as discuss the organization, and what we do.
Walk for Hope –On October 9, we participated in the Walk for Hope in Raleigh, NC. We had a table set up, distributed buttons and flyers promoting Music Over Mind, and we had musical instruments available for those in attendance to play. Our goal is to have as many people as possible hear about our organization, so we can ultimately grow and go on to do bigger and better things.
Butner Hospital - On October 31st, we were given the opportunity to play at Butner Psychiatric Hospital. This is also known as the Central Regional Hospital, which is located in Butner, North Carolina. They house patients, both adults and children, from all over North Carolina. We have played several times with Butner, and the patients just keep asking for us back.
Wake Forest Stigma Free Event - On December 8th, we will get the opportunity to talk to the students at Wake Forest Academy, in Wake Forest, NC. This talk will focus on the struggles with dealing with mental illness and the stigma that surrounds it. It will also include a discussion on how to fight stigma. Of course, David will be bringing his violin to play a few tunes for those in attendance.
