A pilot project at Island Community Mental Health is using hip hop music to help mental health patients heal. In a story on CTV Vancouver Island’s February 26 newscast, Consumer and Life host Louise Hartland features Joey Marelli, a patient who was diagnosed with Psychosis that is participating in the program. The pilot project allows Marelli and other patients to create hip hop music and express themselves.

Jesus Estevez (aka Doc Zoo of Illvis Freshly) and Marco Bermudez (aka. Nostic of The Leg Up Program and Dia-Nos) facilitate the unconventional form of therapy.
