How Music Impacts Our Mental Health
Jenn talks to Dr. Roberto Olivardia about the relationship between music and our mental health. Roberto explains the benefits of both listening to and playing music, discusses why “dark” music isn’t always a red flag, and answers audience questions about how we can help young ones express and explore their thoughts and feelings through music.
Roberto Olivardia, PhD, has been treating patients for the last 20 years since his internship at McLean Hospital. He runs a private practice in Lexington, Massachusetts, where he specializes in the treatment of body dysmorphic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, ADD/ADHD, skin picking disorder, and males with eating disorders. Dr. Olivardia also treats patients with other anxiety and mood disorders.
