Gateway Performance Productions' programs provide relief for 15-year-old Sarah and others who suffer from depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation.
2022 has been an exciting and fulfilling year for Gateway. Partnerships with health and wellness agencies have made it possible to provide the Company's arts programs by prescription from medical doctors, therapists and certified social workers. This programming serves diverse communities including youth ages 12 to 26 diagnosed with anxiety, depression and/or suicidal ideation, elders throughout the state of Georgia age 65 and up who suffer from anxiety, depression and isolation and homeless military veterans temporarily housed at Atlanta's Fort McPherson.
