The Anxiety Project: An Artist’s Look at Mental Health and Wellness


Using a combination of personal experience and research into the complex world of mental health, Penn State Professor of Theater William J. Doan focuses on the intersections of art, science and health. "The Anxiety Project" includes over 400 drawings, four graphic medicine publications in the Annals of Internal Medicine, and a live performance, all of which explore what it’s like to live with anxiety and depression.

Doan, who is also the artist-in-residence for the College of Nursing, has co-authored three books and written several plays and multiple scholarly articles. He is a past president of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education, a fellow in the College of Fellows of The American Theatre, and was the Penn State Laureate for the 2019-20 academic year.
