“So much of what we’re doing is helping youth find their voice,”-IPHRC Director Dr. Jo-Ann Episkenew commented in the article about the “Acting Out! But In A Good Way” research project which is working to help improve the mental health and well-being in First Nations youth through theatre and visual arts-based workshops.

The research project partnered with the File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council (FHQTC) Health Services and is funded from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

Tony Gee,  a puppeteer from England, participates with some of the theatre workshops by introducing the art of puppets and helping the youth to express their creative side of storytelling.

The research project has been gaining a lot of attention lately with all the hard work that everyone puts into.
