About

This study aims to explore the feasibility of implementing and evaluating a class-based intervention in three Danish primary schools. The intervention includes class choir among all students in 0 to 3rd grade as part of the regular school schedule.

Full description

Approximately every fifth child in Denmark experience mental health problems, mental illness, or low levels of school thriving before the age of ten, and 15% of Danish adolescent are diagnosed with a mental disorder before they turn 18. The experience of mental health problems, low school thriving and mental illness in childhood and adolescence is a severe risk factor for school segregation, low grades, school dropout and mental illness in youth and adulthood. There is therefore an urgent need for feasible and effective mental health promoting and preventive interventions from early childhood. High-quality music singing (e.g. choir singing) can promote well-being, social inclusion in school, and positive social relations among school-children, which are key prerequisites for strengthening children's mental health. However, the potential benefits of this type of intervention have not been evaluated in a Danish context. Therefore, we developed the Alle kan synge (AKS; in English: Everyone can sing) intervention as a prototype for implementation and dissemination. The aim of this feasibility study is to explore the feasibility of implementing the AKS intervention in three Danish primary schools and assess feasibility of the evaluation design. Findings will provide knowledge on the critical aspects of the intervention, which may lead to a possible refinement of the AKS intervention, the implementation processes or evaluation design.
