Why Should YOU Use a Mental Health Coordinator?
If safeguarding the mental health and emotional wellbeing of cast and crew isn’t motivation enough, how about safeguarding time and money?
When we are thoughtful in how we schedule, plan for, and execute highly emotional material in production, everything is better! Cast and crew are more productive and efficient, communication between departments is more effective, delays are minimized, and performances are that much better!
Ultimately, everyone walks away believing they made something great and no one was injured in the process – really, the ultimate goal of the arts!
“It was a delightful experience having Amanda be the intimacy coordinator for my play ZARYN. She is thoughtful, provided excellent resources, and her priority of making sure the actors were comfortable and aware of themselves and scene partners was incredible to watch. I learned a lot from her. ”
Nadiya Jackson, Theatre Director
“Hiring Bridget was the best thing we have done in years. This was a really challenging season for a few reasons, and having someone whose job it was to listen, make sure everyone was heard, care for folks, and help find solutions was a game changer. Having a Mental Health Coordinator is now a non-negotiable for me.”
Anita Johnson, Theatre Director
