Happy Veterans Day!

Here at Metro Music Therapy, we truly believe that our Veterans should be honored every day! We hope you enjoy this special edition of the MMT Newsletter, wherein we highlight our work specific to Veterans.

To bring our services to your family or facility, please contact us.

Emory Healthcare Veterans Program

It has been our honor to recently come alongside the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program (EHVP) to provide music therapy services to the veterans and service members in their care. EHVP is a part of the Wounded Warrior Project's Warrior Care Network, a nationwide program which recognizes the stress of military service and the challenges of returning to civilian life. Post-9/11 veterans and service members struggling with invisible wounds such as PTSD, TBI, MST, Anxiety or Depression, may benefit from this free and confidential Intensive Outpatient Program.

"During our sessions at the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program, veterans collaborate with each other to relax, express themselves, share coping skills, and build confidence and self-esteem.

Each veteran brings a unique perspective and experience, and it is my honor to facilitate these groups."

- Hayley Oliver, LPMT, MT-BC

Veteran's Wellness Session

The Metro Music Therapy team held an online veteran's wellness session in light of the recent events in Afghanistan. We knew veterans were hurting, feeling overwhelmed, and may have been triggered by what they saw and heard on the news and social media.

During this free session, the Metro Music Therapy team spoke for a few minutes, sharing ways to decompress, de-stress, and to set oneself up for success when life feels out of control.

After the speaking portion, one of our team members led the participants in a live music and relaxation exercise, wherein each attendee participated in the way that they felt most comfortable.

We hope you enjoy a glimpse into our Music & Wellness Session for Veterans. Thank you to all who attended (both those pictured and not pictured)!

Music Lessons for Veterans

MMT has been providing online music lessons to veterans across the country. COVID has taken a toll on everyone and we are honored to be able to provide a creative and healthy outlet, positive coping skill, and connection with veterans in need. Here is Laura teaching guitar to one of our veteran marines in a different state.

Wounded Warrior Project

Metro Music Therapy is honored to have worked with countless veterans over the years through the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and other organizations dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our service members. MMT provides individual music therapy services to veterans through WWP, and most recently during COVID, conducted virtual group music therapy sessions to veterans during their time of isolation.
