Artreach, Inc. supports recovery for adults who have psychiatric disorders. Our mission is to provide creative arts, alternative wellness, and recreational opportunities to our program members. These activities enhance the quality of our members’ lives. Our members develop resiliency and stress hardiness, and discover new pathways for achieving sustainable recovery. Artreach deeply believes that Creativity Heals.
Artreach is the home of The Second Step Players, an Applied Theater troupe which is one of the first of its kind. Since 1985, their educational sketch comedy, stand up comedy, and musical parodies about mental health issues have entertained, educated the public and reduced stigma. The Players are ambassadors in community education and advocacy. The Second Step Players Touring Theater Troupe performs shows nationally to spread the word that Recovery Happens and Creativity Heals. Artreach’s positive impact extends far beyond the benefits that program members receive. Through local and national Second Step Players productions, we share the message that recovery happens, and that creativity heals. Since 1985, the Second Step Players have created and performed original sketch comedy about mental health issues. The Players touring performances reach audiences from all walks of life; providers of mental health services, students in nursing and psychology programs, family members, and other people who have experienced psychiatric issues.
