Abstract: Music listening is a well-known coping strategy for young people, in particular those who have a mental illness. This paper focuses on the importance of music for young people with mental illness in their everyday life, and in music therapy during an admission to an acute psychiatric facility. The key concepts identified in the author’s doctoral study have implications to use music to support young people’s recovery and ongoing mental health care in both acute care and outpatient engagement.
