B & LM works alongside people with mental health needs and dementia, in the London Boroughs of Bromley and Lewisham, to improve their quality of life. Bromley Mind was formed in 2000 with the merger of three long-standing and well respected mental health charities: Beckenham Mind (founded 1966), Orpington Mind (founded 1964) and Stepping Stones Club (founded 1954). In 2011, the charity began providing services in the London Borough of Lewisham and in 2013 changed its name to become Bromley & Lewisham Mind.

Joining Words and Music in the NOW
Writing poetry and songs can be a very therapeutic way to express how we feel. This interactive session will include reading poems and creating music, exploring our moods and emotions through the creation of sounds and the fusion of our expression with music technology.
