ACT For Therapy

European Solidarity Corps


The "Act Therapy Project" which has been developed by our team has as a main theme the use of drama therapy to improve the mental health of vulnerable groups. Specifically, it seeks the liberation, emotional expression and relief of individuals from social, mental and psychological issues through theater education. Drama therapy, which uniquely combines theater and movement, is an alternative and complementary therapy in relation to the restoration of mental health, helping people to identify and approach in different ways issues and problematic situations of their lives and to deal effectively their pending issues. Through the alternative method of drama therapy, individuals are given the opportunity to create, to externalize feelings and thoughts, to unlock their body and soul by expressing their feelings and thoughts during the exercise and afterwards.


Through the experiential workshops our team seeks:

-improving mental health by bringing mental and emotional balance to individuals

-the best management of emotions

-reduction of depressive symptoms

-increasing the sense of purpose in life

-the strengthening of communication and closeness with the surrounding environment

-the acquisition of self-control

-the empowerment for active participation in social events and personal activities

-gaining trust in society as participants will realize that society cares about its citizens and intervenes therapeutically in order to create healthier and more balanced citizens and promote positive social change
