This original musical is the story of a group of young adults who must learn how to navigate mental illness and tragedy by reminding each other where to find the “Good Things” in life. This show aims to begin a discussion about the real obstacles we face every day. There are strong themes of drug abuse and suicide.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, in 2017, an estimated 3.2 million adolescents aged 12 to 17 in the United States had at least one major depressive episode. This number represented 13.3% of the U.S. population aged 12 to 17. The prevalence of major depressive episodes was higher among adolescent females (20.0%) compared to males (6.8%). While suicide isn’t always linked to depression, most times, mental health is a major factor. Currently, suicide is the second leading cause of death for children, adolescents, and young adults age 5-to-24-year-olds
