'Clueless' by Mary Cooper has been commissioned by NHS Heywood, Middleton & Rochdale CCG in partnership with Pennine Care NHS and Healthy Young Minds Rochdale.
This resource is a digital version of the live performance and facilitated workshop that toured to Rochdale's secondary schools in 2016.
It is intended to be used by professionals working with young people aged 13+ and consists of two interlinked elements:
An intimate, emotionally charged, single voice play which provides a powerful stimulus to provoke meaningful and important peer discussion around the issues of emotional and mental health, well being and serious self harm.
An accompanying facilitators pack, which has a range of follow up activities designed to explore the issues raised within the drama and provides professionals with an opportunity to signpost their young people to the pastoral support available within their own setting, as well as specialist mental health support services.
Raising awareness of emotional and mental health issues and serious self harm.
For young people aged 13+
Specialists in creating dynamic, high quality and relevant productions for children and young people.
M6’s work is driven by a passionate belief in the power of theatre to enrich, challenge, inspire and even transform lives. From the company’s base in Rochdale, M6 reaches audiences of over 15,000 per year.
