37th Annual Arts Council of Greater New Haven Award for “Creative Ecosystem”
“Musical Intervention says people are creative whether they are homeless, have a mental illness, or another dis-ability, or not; that music is a special language which is not so much therapeutic as life-giving; and that people with talent should be recognized and remunerated, when possible, for the creative work they do. Adam Christoferson and company, located in a storefront wedged into a parking garage in the small city of New Haven, have a great idea.”
Michael Rowe, PhD Professor; Co-Director, Program for Recovery and Community Health; Principal Investigator, CMHC Citizenship Project
“Adam was ECMH Keynote Speaker at 2020 Online ECMH Conference and again, with Jeremiah Brown, at 10th European Conference on Mental Health in Lisbon, Portugal in 2022. Both of these Keynotes raised a lot of attention, questions and emotions. In Lisbon, their Keynote was a wonderful start for the whole conference and the atmosphere they created lasted during the whole conference.
Based on our evaluations and feedback, it is obvious that Musical Intervention is potential method to improve mental wellbeing and mental health among different communities in different countries. We are committed to share the idea of Musical Intervention in our global networks.”

Our vision cast is to travel the United States and record the hearts, minds, and stories of people from all walks of life and recovery. So many voices are unheard due to lack of opportunity to access the healing platform that Musical Intervention provides. We want to change that. Help us get there by supporting this vision of making Musical Intervention mobile and reaching communities throughout the country.
