Art & Wellbeing

The emotional and mental benefits of participating in the arts and engaging in a creative outlet has long been proven, from being an expressive outlet, to promoting wellbeing and a space for social connection.

Taking part in an acting class has numerous benefits from improving confidence, to developing articulation and communication skills, providing a cathartic outlet to showing the value of teamwork and enhancing emotional intelligence.

“It helps me to express emotion in a healthy way by allowing me to release negative energy through performing.”

Elliot, 27

Alongside our weekly acting class program and specialist diplomas, The YAFTA Project has been developed to teach acting classes in schools with a focus on the development of psychological skills to support individual student growth, mental health, and wellbeing.

The YAFTA Project provides after-school and integrated curriculum-based courses taught by professional acting tutors. The courses are supported by a team of mental health professionals who work with the teaching team to advise on the appropriate delivery of the courses to facilitate good mental health amongst the school population.

For further details on The YAFTA project head to the website or for any specific enquiries around the social value of acting and wellbeing please contact info@yafta.co.uk
