Mental Health & Improv
07:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Join us for this FREE webinar! Improvisation or improv for short, is a form of live theater in which all aspects of the performance are made up in the moment. Improv has its roots in the 1920’s when a woman named Viola Spolin developed it as a series of games that would appeal to kids. Improv, however, has also been used to assist individuals with mental health conditions, particularly anxiety and depression and even autism, to cope with their symptoms. This webinar will focus on how improv can help with anxiety and depression and how it has helped our panelists with mental health challenges.
Our panels consists of mental health activists and improv visionaries: Nicole Pascaretta, Ashley Hughes and RJ Cach.
