ADULTS WITH MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES

Theatre can produce a significant impact on those who live with a stigmatized health condition, such as psychiatric or psychological conditions.

In our theatre groups, we bring together adults with and without mental health challenges, to explore the subject and seek to dispel the taboos still associated with it.

We have worked in partnership with the charity Make, Do and Mend and run our own independent group, Making Changes, funded by Big Lottery Fund and Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.

“I have enjoyed the experiences of participating in Acting Now projects and have better confidence due to them. My social life has improved along with reducing my anxiety. The groups I'm part of have showed me nothing but love and friendship and welcomed me with an open heart. I gain pleasure from going to Acting Now groups and look forward every session. A big thank you to Marina and the Acting Now team.”

Neil Graham, Making Changes group participant.
