Theatre of the Oppressed Performance in JPMC Psychiatry Department

On 1st March 2023, an IRD-led team performed a play using the Theatre of the Oppressed methodology at the JPMC Psychiatry building. The audience comprised 3rd and 4th year medical students. The drama narrated the stories of three Kirans, one a medical student aspiring to specialize in Psychiatry, another a Psychiatry PG trainee and the third a practicing psychiatrist. It depicted the challenges faced by each of them in their families and communities due to the misconceptions related to choosing psychiatry as a profession.
