Music On Your Own Terms 104 - Heavy Metal Therapy With Dr. Katie Quinn

In this episode I talk to clinical psychologist and metalhead, Dr. Katie Quinn about her internet support group, Heavy Metal Therapy, that is bringing together the metal community to talk about mental health issues, share stories and provide resources to help people overcome their challenges. We learn about Katie's background, including how metal helped her get through a particularly stressful period, the support she received from academia, urging her to set the group up in the first place, and we also explore how music can be both therapeutic, as well as detrimental in certain circumstances.
