A systematic review of mental health and wellbeing outcomes of group singing for adults with a mental health condition

The article examines systematically the growing body of empirical research on the efficacy of group singing as a social intervention for people diagnosed with mental health problems. The literature review examined 709 articles and of these identified thirteen representing data from 667 participants which measured wellbeing outcomes from group singing in a community context for persons with mental health problems. The current results indicate that group singing could be a promising social intervention, though more rigorous research is needed.
