Mental Wellness in Colorado’s Music Community

To support a healthy music community, The Hall has launched Keep The Beat, a mental wellness program to raise awareness, provide resources, and de-stigmatize the conversation around mental health and addiction within the music industry. With mental health issues and addiction dependence soaring across the globe, the music industry has certainly not been immune.

After the pandemic shut down our music industry for a previously unimaginable amount of time, the Colorado Music Hall of Fame decided that we could do more to support our local musicians, gig workers, stagehands, and industry personnel. Keep The Beat was born to raise awareness about mental wellness and share free and low-cost resources with Colorado’s music industry.
