SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) — Mental Health America of Spartanburg is using theater to raise awareness of mental health.
SNAP! is a one-woman show about the true story of a 16-year-old girl’s descent into mental illness, her commitment to a state mental hospital and her journey back to reality.
You can expect music and humor with storytelling appropriate for teens and adults, which is meant to give a deeper understanding of mental health challenges.
The free event is from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 24 at the Spartanburg County Public Libraries Headquarters branch on S. Church Street in Spartanburg.
The event kicks off the 2019 Stone Soup Storytelling Festival that runs April 26-28 in Woodruff.
SNAP! is an original show written and performed by Reggie Carpenter. The author is also an educator and award-winning storyteller who details her experiences with mental illness.
