About the Support Group

A monthly support group has been established with the following mission:

  1. To hold space for those who have experienced re-triggering of trauma from experiences within the theatre community
  2. To allow time and people’s experience be a source of support for each other
  3. To advocate for improving the health and safety of the Chicago Theatre Community
  4. To provide additional information and resources for deeper healing and preventative measures


We also strongly encourage those who feel the need for individual counseling and endorse the providers found on the support group resources page. Each counselor and center has been highly recommended by the professional community. An initial, individual intake will be important for those suffering from the effects of trauma, and Dr. Fredie Friedman (see resource page) advises that individual counsel is extremely important with a support group being a supplemental resource.
