A Wall Is A Road
What does your life become when every day you make the choice between giving up, making it work, or just keep breathing? Explore that with us, as we perform stories written by people with mental illness diagnoses at the National Alliance on Mental Illness Center of Washington County.

Beautiful Minds is an ongoing writing-for-theatre workshop at NAMI Washington County. Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, from 11am-12:30pm, participants work with a professional theatre director from Well Arts to craft their experiences and imaginings into performable stories. Once a year, Well Arts auditions and rehearses actors who work with the participants-turned-playwrights to perform stories from the workshop on stage for the general public. Well Arts is an arts-in-medicine 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides writing and oral history workshops for people with physical or mental illness, or social trauma, that culminates in public performances of stories written by people in the workshops. The goal is that empathy, honoring, creativity, learning, and community-building becomes an important part of all of our healing.
