    This 8-week program combines theater games and exercises with storytelling and discussion to build a sense of community and benefit wellbeing. No previous theatre experience is required, all abilities are welcome!

    Our theatre for health team is comprised of both arts in health professionals and mental health professionals. All of our facilitators complete training and background checks by the University of Florida Office of Youth Conferences to preserve our participants' mental wellbeing and physical safety.

    Our thoughtfully selected activities and discussions are guided by our participants' needs and cover topics such as:

    Improvisational theatre
    Story-telling
    Character development
    Sociodrama
    Self-confidence
    Playwriting
