“Join the maladjusted live, interactive webcast! You’re invited to join us for the 2015 remount of our main stage production maladjusted.
maladjusted asks how we can humanize the mental health system and is created and performed by patients and caregivers. Everyone around the world is invited to view and participate! Everyone who can’t come to the live show in Vancouver, Canada can watch maladjusted as a live and interactive webcast on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 8PM (PST).
How can we support human-centered care? What needs to be done to ensure safety for patients and caregivers? How do we sustain a healthy mental health system? These are just a few questions that maladjusted explores.
“maladjusted, is a thought-provoking, gut-wrenching, funny, sad and mind broadening journey inside the hierarchical and mechanical mental health system-a system that leaves little time or money to invest in the people it is trying to serve.”
-Patty Osborn, geist.com
What is a webcast?
For maladjusted, a chat space will be available for viewers who wish to make interventions in the play. In this chat space, you can talk with “web actors” who are standing by on computers backstage and your suggestions will be enacted by these web actors who will intervene in this live Forum Theatre event on your behalf.
When is the webcast?
Please join early so you don’t miss the start! The live, interactive, global web cast will be held on
Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 8PM (PST) pre-show: 7:45pm PST curtain: 8:00pm PST
Please visit the maladjusted webcast page and bookmark it now!

Why participate in maladjusted?
Don’t just take our word for it! Check out what our talented cast has to say!
How do I stream the webcast?
You will need an Internet connection fast enough to stream video, i.e. if you can play YouTube clips, you can stream the webcast. The Adobe Flash video player that can play YouTube video can be found here.
Please share this with your contacts around the world in whichever way you can, especially for those you know are interested in speaking out about mental health and have something to share with the rest of us. Organize a webcast party! Bring together a group of friends with several computers (or laptops), get a projector and a big screen and watch together the webcast. People get into the chat space, where there are usually really interesting conversations going on “backstage” about the issues explored.
AND, please spread the word about this unique and exciting project through social media.
We want to hear from you! You can connect with us via Facebook: facebook.com/theatreforliving and Twitter @theatre4living you can tweet us your ideas of how to humanize mental health and use the hashtag #maladjusted to stay connected with others participating in the conversations.”
