STILL/FALLING at BC School Counsellors Association Conference
This #WorldMentalHealthDay, we are collectively navigating a pandemic while each experiencing its affects in different ways.
"Ask for the help you need – it is out there, and it does make a difference. And as you embark on a path towards recovery, be patient with yourself. Be patient, and be kind." - STILL/FALLING Playwright's notes

While we may not be currently touring, Mental Health awareness and conversations remain a priority.
STILL/FALLING by Rachel Aberle has been performed over 180 times and encourages conversations and awareness, helping students gain a deeper understanding of mental health, and especially how it can affect themselves and their peers.
We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting STILL/FALLING on October 23 as a part of the BC School Counsellors Association Conference. The performance will be accompanied by a discussion with Green Thumb Artistic Director, Patrick McDonald and Social Justice and Mental Health Youth Advocate, Shilpa Narayan, to explore performance as a tool to initiate conversations about mental health.
