Impact of Group Music Therapy on the Depression Mood of College Students

ABSTRACT: The goal of this study was to examine the ef- fects of group music therapy on depression and mental health among college students. 80 stu- dents participated in this study, with 40 as- signed to control group and other 40 assigned to experimental group. The results showed that after the group music therapy, for the experi- mental group, the depression scores have re- duced significantly and the mental health scores have improved, while for the control group, no significant difference was obtained on the de- pression and mental health scores. This indi- cates that group music therapy can effectively reduce depression and improve mental health.
