    Hey Brian!

    With an influx of mass shootings, gas prices, Roe v. Wade, and the impending recession, depression numbers are on the rise! In fact, “April 2020-April 2021, the prevalence of people with depression or anxiety symptoms in America increased substantially — from about 11 percent of people in 2019 to close to 40 percent.”

    Many Americans are finding relief in a unique outlet: Improv. As [insert reference to an article about how it actually helps] has found, Improv reduces depression by:
    promoting levels of oxytocin and serotonin through laughter and acceptance
    giving tools to help off the stage and in real life, like how to accept when things don’t go your way
    how to support and in return how to accept support
    Improv builds safe spaces for creativity and helps form bonds with people from different perspective and backgrounds

    If you’re looking to do a piece highlighting this unique potential solution to rising depression, I’m happy to connect you to a local Improv icon, Lisa Little, the owner of ComedySportz San Antonio, as a guest expert!

    Thank You,
