Commissioned to examine Teenage Mental Health and to constructively look at how we maintain or can all too simply loose our mental health, Inside Out follows several young people aged 16-28 to see how the world they live in impacts on their wellbeing. One young couple struggle with what it means to their future now that they’re pregnant. Another couple struggle with their future, and the impact of existing mental health conditions on their relationship.

The play actively avoids labels to conditions but the action directly examines, self harm, anxiety and depression and eating disorders, to name but a few. Looking also at teenage pregnancy, child sexual exploitation and a suite of behaviours and environmental conditions that may lead to deteriorating mental health for us all, Inside Out is a very honest start to a dialogue about how we each personally affect and are effected by the world around us.
The play lasts 1hr and has a follow on workshop of approx 1 hour
Designed principally for audience of Yr10 and above
