Social anxiety amongst teenagers is a growing problem in North America, fueled by the inescapability of social evaluation through social media. While social anxiety often leads to decreased functionality, untreated it can develop into clinical depression and suicidal behaviour. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in adolescents. Our research goal is to explore if engagement in art and drama workshops can improve the teenage participants’ sense of self-esteem and self-confidence, leading to a reduction in social anxiety. Such evidence can increase support for such programs in school curricula across Quebec.
