The Mental Health Players is an interactive improv group comprised of community volunteers who perform throughout the year for civic and/or religious organizations, senior groups, schools and more. The Players’ model was formed over 30 years ago as a vehicle to educate the broader Nassau County community about the myths and realities of mental illnesses. The Players perform realistic vignettes about mental health challenges, giving the audience a dynamic opportunity to learn about the different faces of mental illness and the reality of stigma.

The goal of each performance is to normalize mental illness and begin to reduce the stigma and discrimination that people with mental illnesses face on a daily basis.
