Rhythm2Recovery (CXT)


selectability Townsville's Mental Health Hub is bringing Rhythm2Recovery (R2R) drumming to Charters Towers!

The drumming circle aims to provide a safe and welcoming environment for people to socialise, learn new skills and improve their mental wellbeing.

What is R2R?

R2R is a group-based drumming program that taps into people's emotions and – when combined with reflective discussion – is used as an effective alternative form of therapy.

The fun and engaging sessions center on rhythmic musical activities to support both social and emotional development.

Meet the facilitator

Melissa Ashford, a senior peer worker and Carer Gateway coach, thrives on empowering others find freedom and breakthrough in their lives. Mel has a lived experience of mental health and had her own journey of overcoming the stigma that is so often attached.
Mel is passionate about healing through Emmet therapy in both humans and equine (horses).
Most recently Mel has completed her Rhythm2Recovery facilitator training and now runs a weekly session at selectability’s Mental Health Hub (Townsville). Rhythm2Recovery is a fun and engaging rhythmic music activity that supports social and emotional development.
