Mental Health In Motion

Mental Health In Motion is an organization that uses educational dance performances alongside traditional means of teaching to advocate for and draw awareness to various mental health topics. We provide these trainings to a variety of populations including but not limited to parents, teachers, medical and mental health professionals, students, and patients. The complexities of mental health issues such as trauma, attachment, grief, addiction, as well as all of the various clinical diagnoses and disorders can be really difficult to understand. Through the visual experience of a dance story which displays the intricacies of a mental health issue, one can more deeply understand the topic from an emotional level and see the issue from a more personal standpoint. When our emotional perceptions shift, our actions tend to follow, and we can begin to interact with the world in more informed and empathic ways.

For more information about our organization, please visit mentalhealthinmotion.org or email questions to contact@mentalhealthinmotion.org.
