Potpourri: The Stage Play

Potpourri: Bizarre Tales of a Sweet Life.

The Mental Health Awareness Week organized by the Psychology Department came to an end with this Stage Play that showcased a keen look at mental illness and the myths surrounding those who suffer from them.

The aim of the play was to give the audience a glimpse of people living with mental disorders (Autism, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Borderline Personality Disorder, Substance Abuse Disorder and Dementia), how they are just like every day people who don’t suffer from a mental disorder and that there is nothing silly about them even if their reality differs from ours. Everyone is crazy in their own way, everyone has quirks- some of which may not be considered normal. But at the end of the day, deviance from the norm is not just limited to having a mental disorder.
