Theatre Academy support World Teen Mental Health Wellness Day

Monday 2nd March

Today is World Teen Mental Health Wellness Day. Our Blackfriars Theatre Academy work closely with many teens and know that their mental health is an important issue that can be overlooked. They will always do their best to support all members.
The members at BTA have theatre, drama and the arts to express their individuality in a way that they might not necessarily have elsewhere. BTA aim to provide a safe space for young people who suffer from bullying in other settings, allowing them to be completely themselves and 'fit in'.
We have many members that are eastern European and young people who identify as LGBTQ+, and with our support, guidance and encouragement, everyone is fully integrated and accepted, working together to create a visible outcome in their theatrical productions.
If you know a young person that might be struggling and would enjoy getting involved in theatre, please send them our way. Box Office: 01205 363108

Blackfriars undoubtedly plays a very important role as Boston's centre for entertainment and the arts. It is home to two very successful local amateur dramatic and operatic groups, as well as hosting a varied program of professional stage productions.
