We Are… Yearning

Music Therapy Social Media Advocacy Month is all about advocating for the growth and recognition of Music Therapy across the US.

WE ARE YEARNING

  • for state recognition 
  • acceptance/coverage by insurance
  • new accredited university education programs
  • New accredited internship sites
  • and overall growth of our field

 

You can help MTs achieve these goals by becoming an effective advocate!

What is an advocate?

“Advocacy is…for anyone

Regardless of experience or professional training, a successful advocate is someone with passion and commitment for a cause or an idea, who tells a convincing story expressing their beliefs and passion.”

How can you help?
