We are all in the midst of re-entry.
The world is a different place than it was pre-COVID. We are not the same person that we were pre-COVID. We're navigating the news, virtual/hybrid learning, work from home, re-entry back to work or school, job changes, and in-person safety precautions. All while keeping up with the day-to-day.
It is all too much.
This is why PWTF is focusing this current 2021-2022 season on:
head + heART:
nurturing mental health awareness through theatre
We are amplifying stories about breaking down barriers in the pursuit of mental health treatment and medication, and increasing awareness around isolation, invisibility, and stigmas.
We know that destigmatizing mental health issues leads to people seeking treatment and a healthier society, but starting these conversations can be a difficult and daunting task.
By offering a platform for these stories through art and live performance, we will open an accessible dialogue about mental health. Every month throughout our 2021-2022 season, we will highlight how mental health and mental illness impacts specific communities including women, veterans, LGBTQ, BIPOC, parents, and youth.
