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 theNHSmoney, 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 Guardian newspaper 17 July 2017This course about how theatre/cinema can be used to reduce depression and anxiety, was originally divided into ten lectures but we expanded it a little as a crowd funding campaign caught our eye and so we have an extra lecture about the campaign, an interview with the producer and some useful websites. PLUS NUMEROUS EXTENSION ACTIVITIES (see below!)The total lecture time is about two hours – think how much can be learnt in that time! BUT this is not a course just about watching and listening. It is about learning and putting into action. Maybe you know someone who is depressed. Maybe YOU are suffering from depression and anxiety! This course is about helping, helping you and enabling you to help others as well as yourself. Comments and questions are always welcome – and they are usually responded to within 24 hours. Lecture 1distinguishes between stress, depression and anxiety. The lecture concludes with the symptoms of depression. Lecture 2deals with the influence of the arts in particular theatre and shows how theatre involvement can reduce depression. Lecture 3 outlines current government policy (and the policy of the Official Opposition) on the Arts. Lectures 4 and 5 return to theatre and how involvement in theatre can reduce depression. Lecture 5 in particular shows how acting may be therapy. Lectures 6 and 7 show how improvisation in particular may be therapeutic for those suffering from depression. Lecture 8 is a spoof video on drama therapy. It is made up of outtakes from a film about a family playing monopoly. All the links in the film are genuine and it has a serious message to put across. Lecture 9 deals with the differences between theatre and cinema. Lecture 10 explains how cinema portrays -and can be used to reduce -depression. Various films are suggested. Lectures 11 and 12 describe the crowd funding campaign for a film produced by a 17 year old male who himself has suffered from depression. Lecture 12 is an interview with the young producer. Lecture 13 shows the results received when the question Which is the best movie to watch when you are depressed? was asked. The closing lecture, lecture 14, talks the viewer through two websites that provide further resources to investigate when dealing with depression.

He brings to the coursepractical examples from plays and films as well as discussion of resources. 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 Orga
