"Working with Good Mood Creative and participating in their Theatre for Mental Health workshops has been so beneficial to our students.

In an environment where challenging behaviors often obscure the potential for growth, Good Mood Creative brought a unique approach that not only engaged our students but also provided an outlet for them. Good Mood fostered an atmosphere of trust and creativity, allowing our students to navigate their mental health challenges with courage and resilience."
