Formed in 1997, based in Bristol, and with forty seven productions to its credit, Stepping Out Theatre is the country s leading mental health theatre group and is a registered charity. It has produced a wide range of work on mental health themes and is open to people who have used mental health services and their allies.
The group focuses on producing plays, but also runs drama, writing, dramatherapy, dance and music workshops. It offers service users the opportunity to work alongside people with professional experience of writing, directing and acting, some of whom are service users themselves.

"The work Stepping Out Theatre is doing should be supported by all interested in a society that is healthy. Stepping Out understands and does not shy away from the possibility that theatre, the ancient art of these islands North West of Europe, is a transformative and healing activity which brings joy into people's lives. If you want to hear something true, go and hear what Stepping Out Theatre are saying. I only found myself in theatre, and I hear that Stepping Out is helping other people do the same. I have great hopes for this company and deep respect for what they are doing right now."
Mark Rylance, Patron

Typical feedback from our members includes:
"Stepping Out has done me more good than all the doctors and all the tablets I ever took."
"I felt like I had been asleep for thirty years and then, doing the play, I came awake."
