What is it?

A theatre-based workshop in which we meet a number of education colleagues who are either experiencing a variety of mental health problems, or who are in some way impacted by others who may be suffering. The workshop is designed to be fun, engaging and at times, challenging. It reflects some of the real-life scenarios experienced in an educational environment.

What will I do on the day?

Through a variety of observational and interactive activities, delegates will engage on an emotional level and develop a sense of empathy for the characters they meet. Exploring sometimes difficult issues in a safe environment, delegates will feel more confident to discuss mental health issues in the future.

embedding the learning.

Using a theatre-based learning approach to this course supports a deeper comprehension of mental wellbeing. By meeting different characters, delegates are able to use questioning to clarify their own understanding, relating situations to their own experience and embedding the learning on a more personal level.

We also offer further additional digital resources to support extended learning as a blended option.

Some faq's about Mental Health Awareness.

0.1What is Theatre based learning?

Theatre Based Learning is the technique we use to bring learning to life by using our actors to perform scenarios, based on real case studies.

Theatre Based Learning can be either observational (where learners watch scenes and discuss) OR participative (where we use techniques like real-play and practice, forum where learners interact with the actors and direct them or hot-seating where learners give feedback to individual characters and make suggestions). This course uses our actors to both demonstrate presentation skills and often made mistakes and techniques with the ability for all learners to present and receive feedback

0.2What are the benefits of mental health awareness training?
With 70 million lost working days each year due to mental health issues, now is the time to support your staff on how to understand and identify potential mental health challenges in the educational environment. By undertaking this training, your team will be better equipped to support themselves, each other, and your students and encourage good mental health and wellbeing.
