The role of theatre/cinema in breaking the cycle of anxiety, depression and despair – a key to treating depression and anxiety.

«GPs prescribing arts activities to some patients could lead to a dramatic fall in hospital admissions and save the NHS money, according to a report into the subject of arts, health and wellbeing published after two years of evidence gathering.

The report, published on Wednesday, includes hundreds of interviews and dozens of case studies showing how powerfully the arts can promote health and wellbeing.»

The overall purpose of this course is to provide ways in which depression and anxiety may be reduced but also to raise awareness.

«Depression is a common illness worldwide, with more than 300 million people affected. Depression is different from usual mood fluctuations and short-lived emotional responses to challenges in everyday life. Especially when long-lasting and with moderate or severe intensity, depression may become a serious health condition. It can cause the affected person to suffer greatly and function poorly at work, at school and in the family. At its worst, depression can lead to suicide. Close to 800 000 people die due to suicide every year. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds  «

– The World Health Organisation

This course should be seen as  just a few steps to try and reduce the problem, the sadness and the despair.
