The current situation has put a strain on everyone’s mental health and this panel discussion will provide an honest and open forum to explore what people have been doing to stay productive. The session will include coping mechanisms and tips about how to look after yourself.
The webinar will feature Freya Jackson, Gregg Arundell and Luke Adamson.
Freya Jackson is winner of a 2019 Northern Writer’s Award, has been published in various literary journals and has had short plays put on in new writing nights in Leeds, Lewes and London.
Greg Arundell is an actor and writer originally from Norfolk.
His work around mental health and his award winning debut short play ‘Brain Jam’ allowed him to open up about his own personal struggles, whilst helping young people across the country better understand the importance of their own mental wellbeing.
Greg is currently writing his first full length play with the help of Creative Youth, and is incredibly excited to be part of today’s panel.
