Secondary Schools

Secondary schools in Torbay and Devon can get involved with our Open Doors Outreach programme through three key offers:


Artists in Residence programmes: Theatre of the Mind

A theatre and wellbeing education program which uses active learning. This program supports early intervention and awareness by increasing knowledge and understanding of mental health and wellbeing in young people.  It reduces stigma and improves awareness of self-resilience and coping strategies. It also cultivates a safe learning environment for participants to understand and connect with their emotions through drama and creative practice.

Available either as a 3-week Foundation programme or a more intensive 6-week Residency. Please contact to find out more. Download a PDF with full details here.
