Our overall research question is: How effectively can we promote culturally appropriate MHL in urban and rural communities using applied theatre methodology? This will be addressed through specific research questions:

  1. How is MHL shaped by economic, social and cultural contexts in Kerala?
  2. How do urban and rural communities construct a culturally and socially appropriate meaning for MHL?
  3. How can we best engage with urban and rural communities in Kerala to discuss mental ill-health?
  4. How might we use a participatory applied theatre model as an intervention for developing MHL?
  5. How can we best engage with communities, professionals, services, policy-makers and Governmental agencies in promoting MHL?
