We at JTP have seen first hand how effective theater is for storytelling and busting the myths and misunderstandings about mental illness and people living with a mental health diagnosis. Our theatre troupe Acting Out Loud has brought their message of hope and recovery to over 4,000 people across the U.S.
Tiffany Keeler at Art Works found an interesting story (link here) about a play called Inside Out performed in Scotland. It is a collaboration between college students and a mental health agency.
Too bad we can’t get there to see it. If you know of any theater or arts activities that work to end stigma, send the information our way. Always encouraging to hear about the great work being done throughout the world!
