HIDDEN by Peer Productions
Hidden is a play designed to support the Life Skills curriculum. Returning for its’ 5th year, Hidden tells the story of three teenagers who meet at a music festival. They go to different schools, have different friendship groups and have led very different lives.
However they all suffer from mental health issues. This 80 minute drama tackles a range of important mental health issues which now affect 1 in 3 young people. Hidden has been developed in consultation with clinicians, those who have recovered from self-harm and leading charities in the field. The play aims to explain what self harm is and what can trigger people to self harm, debunk some myths around the subject, provide healthier alternative ways to handle emotions, enable young people to be a good friend to someone who may be experiencing such issues and get appropriate help for themselves or a friend who are experiencing mental health problems.
