SOCIAL MEDIA ENGAGEMENT

Social Media Engagement: You can help promote music therapy awareness on social media through one of our external relations campaigns:
#MTmoment:​ Take a photo of your music therapy set up and share it on facebook, twitter, or instagram with our hashtag! (Please don’t include photos with any identifying features of clients! Shots of hands/feet are OK).
#FriendsofMT:​ Ask your friends to get involved! Take a photo with you and share it using this hashtag. Include what they appreciate about music therapy.
