Few things in this world have the healing power of music, just ask Izzy Jane. While Herizon’s mission is to give the next generation of female music makers a better chance at succeeding in a music-related career, the pandemic has revealed a secondary (yet critical) benefit of our programs: Improving Teen’s Mental Health. The pandemic has exponentially increased anxiety and depression rates with one teen help line stating it has seen a 50% increase in texts and calls since March 2020.
While this is devastating to hear, the good news is that research shows that listening to and creating music makes a positive difference. Programs like ours are essential for mental health now more than ever. Please help us expand our programs and reach as we enter 2021! DONATE HERE
