The Mental Health Project, a theatrical endeavor, is a work in progress. The playwright, who is a licensed psychotherapist, is creating the work by adapting source material obtained from those wanting to share their mental health experiences. The work is intended to entertain, as well as to provide an enlightening focus on mental health disorders, including alcohol and substance abuse. The work also deals with those who have experienced depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues, and severe and persistent types of mental illnesses. Actors and other participants, giving voice to individuals who are often underserved and even marginalized, will convey a collective message that resonates to the greater good societally. In doing so, the work hopes to destigmatize mental illness, and other life challenges, that are misunderstood, criticized, and judged.
