Tonic Music for Mental Health is a not-for-profit organisation based in Highland Road, Southsea, and it was established in June 2012. Terry Hall (The Specials) and Kevin Cummins (music photographer) are both Tonic patrons.
Tonic is both a shop and a music space and the team here raises awareness and challenges the stigma often associated with mental illness, through music and art-based events. They organise music workshops, gigs, art groups, and community projects throughout the year for people experiencing mental health problems.
Tonic supports musicians and artists by funding art and music projects that helps individual recovery and enables the individual to earn an income through their craft.
