Fidgety Fairy Tales give information about mental health disorders by retelling familiar fairy tales. Each story contains positive messages and portrayals of children with mental health disorders as well as some of the common symptoms of a disorder.
It has appealed to many different age groups from preschool to adults. Each group has responded very positively to the performance. Grades four and up seem to absorb the mental health message more easily, although we have been at schools with strong mental health curriculum where kindergarteners have asked very poignant questions.
