Drama is a creative and imaginative way to engage with mental health issues. As a medium Drama enables students to engage with their learning and build their knowledge and understanding through a practical approach. We are passionate about drama and the empowerment of children and young people in Yorkshire to understand their mental health and build an awareness of how to prevent mental health illness.
Mental health understanding is important for all young people. Within the education system it has become apparent that young people can experience mental health problems and are unaware that what they are experiencing is linked to or affecting their mental health and well-being.
Our overall aim is for young people in Yorkshire to have an awareness and understanding that means they can manage their mental health and recognize signs that they may need to put coping strategies in place or seek further support. We aim to promote active healthy lifestyles, emotional resilience, and coping skills, while signposting support services available.
