Drawing on extracts from his forthcoming book about music and mental health, How Shostakovich Changed my Mind, Stephen Johnson - broadcaster, composer, and writer - examines the role that music can play in offering respite from mental illnesses. Stephen Johnson has spent a life working in music and has documented his own episodes with depression: so this talk brings a unique, fascinating mix of scholarly expertise and personal experience to a subject about which we should all know more.
