Mental Health Ireland in conjunction with Wexford Mental Health Association is hosting a webinar on 19 January to launch The Discover/Recover Theatre Project: A Social Impact Study with special guest, Minister for Mental Health and Older People Mary Butler TD.
The Discover/Recover Theatre Project is a preventative mental health intervention that utilises live drama performance to effectively increase mental health literacy, reduce stigma through education and support help seeking amongst young people.
The project is a co-production, sharing the lived experience of people with mental health challenges via the professionally produced testimonial theatre performance, A Face in the Crowd, supported by a mental health educational workshop for young people.
An independent evaluation was carried out by Just Economics in 2019. This webinar will share the positive impact findings demonstrated in the evaluation; generate discussion from key stakeholders from arts, health and education; and explore sustainability for this essential mental health promotion project which has proven to be a safe and effective medium for reaching young people.
Online via Zoom
Date: Tuesday 19 January 2021
A Zoom link will be sent to all attendees before the launch begins.
