Teaching Veterans the Mental Health Benefits of Acting
Serving in the military can take an emotional toll on many of our brave men and women, particularly those who were injured. Act Up supports veterans in reconnecting with emotions they may have lost during service by teaching methods of acting. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, our main focus is to have as many veterans as possible complete this highly beneficial training.
Our mission is to train veterans using acting techniques to help them redevelop emotions oppressed by combat or military service.
The acting techniques taught to retired military personnel help enhance their listening skills and better respond and react to situations. More importantly, the emotional recallability is vital in allowing veterans to truthfully express themselves in a safe environment. In order to fulfill this worthy mission, we seek donations and volunteers to aid our nonprofit organization in improving the lives of veterans.
