This FREE classroom-sized session is 45-50 minutes and presented in-person and for only 6th and 7th grades to support mental wellness for KC area pre-teens/teens.
Pairing one trained actor/facilitator with one graduate student in social work, this session addresses the mental health issues we’re seeing on a fast rise in our schools.
This innovative, interactive theatre work introduces middle school students, an often-underserved group, to mental wellness concepts—with the goals of de-stigmatizing asking for help, opening dialogue, and providing resiliency tools.
- Dramatic format captures student attention; based on real stories of Kansas City teens dealing with anxiety and depression
- On-your-feet wellness activities moderated by UMKC Masters of Social Work students paired with a professional actor/facilitator
- Self-management skills to regulate emotions and to monitor/achieve behaviors related to school and life success
- The hope of Project Daylight is to create early intervention and, as a result, prevent serious mental health crisis in later years.
