Mental Health Ireland in conjunction with Wexford Mental Health Association invite you to a Webinar to launch:
The Discover/Recover Theatre Project: A Social Impact Study
(An independent evaluation carried out by Just Economics in 2019)
Tuesday 19th January 2021 at 11am
The Discover/Recover Theatre Project is a preventative mental health intervention that seeks to increase mental health literacy and reduce stigma through education and awareness-raising:
· A Testimonial theatre performance “A Face in the Crowd”
· Coproduction and sharing the lived experience of people with mental health challenges
· Mental health education workshop for young people
Key finding of the report show that this is an effective approach that improves mental health literacy, reduces stigma and supports help-seeking behaviours among young people.
The play was highly endorsed by the young people and 92% supported its staging in other locations.
The project reached 1032 young people across 10 Secondary Schools in 2019.
This webinar will show the very positive 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 been proven to be a safe and effective medium of reaching young people.
