A graduate student at Rutgers has set out to show how improvisational acting can help increase confidence and communication skills in individuals with mental health illnesses. Rutgers School of Public Health graduate student Mark Lee uses improv to teach individuals how to express themselves and overcome their insecurities.He said he first gained interest in helping individuals with mental illnesses from personal experiences. “Just in my personal life, a lot of my friends and family have mental illnesses, whether it's anxiety or depression, and I can see just how difficult it is for people to live with that and a lot of the times they have trouble just reaching out for help just because of the stigma that’s associated with mental illnesses,” he said. Lee said that he feels lucky to have found a way to combine something he loves with a message that he connects with personally. He said that his interest in theater started aimlessly, but he has learned how to use his passion to help individuals combat the stigma that surrounds mental illnesses. "Improv in general teaches you the skills that more or less apply to any situation you have with interacting with other people,” Lee said.
