Music to Heal the Troubled Mind

Depression can strike individuals at any age and sufferers from this debilitating illness come from all walks of life. One young musician, Leeds-based Rock/Alternative multi-instrumentalist, Aiden Hatfield, openly suffers from depression. He believes he wouldn’t be alive if music wasn’t a part of his life.
