Stepping Stone Theatre for Mental HealthBack to Activities
We are a theatre company based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. Our main focus is on mental health and recovery and all our shows reflect this. The company is made up of service users and health care givers.
Stepping Stone Theatre offers grassroots peer support at its best. People will not come out unless they feel safe and supported; to create a safe place. Come and share your story and help destigmatize mental illness.
Writing workshops – podcast – personal development – self-confide. Enhancing wellbeing through creativity.
On-line and face-to-face writing group; also, virtual meetings and groups sessions online and also one to one podcast and group broadcasts.
We offer drop in and pre-booked sessions. And all of our sessions are groups.
This is good for wellbeing because
- It helps to reduce social isolation and loneliness, which can have a negative impact upon health and well-being.
- Make friends and create a group which is safe and friendly.
- Taking part is good for wellbeing because sharing your story creates strength and empathy.
As usual, the very high standard Bill and Kate put into their passion to help people with mental health problems, oozes out. I have more confidence to try new things, have more empathetic outlook and love helping, as a volunteer, achieve every goal they set.
