About this event

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 (Just Economics in 2019)

With Special Guest, Minister for Mental Health and Older People Mary Butler TD

Tuesday 19th January 2021 at 11:00am

'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 coproduction, 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.

The key finding of the report show that this is an effective approach that:

  • Improves mental health literacy
  • Reduces stigma
  • Supports help-seeking behaviours among young people.

The 'A Face in the Crowd' performance 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 alone.

This Webinar will share the positive impact findings demonstrated in 'The Discover/Recover Theatre Project: A Social Impact Study' 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.
