Prone to panic? Anxious about everything? Heal yourself the Hollywood way! Join us for this one-of-a-kind “seminar” and discover all the self-help secrets you wish you knew. We promise you’ll never look at mental health the same way again.
Originally produced as a live interactive show in the 2019 Philadelphia SoLow Fest, THE CELEBRITY GUIDE TO MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS is a comedic riff on the self-help seminar that tries to make sense of the mixed messages about mental health coming from news reports, celebrities, commercials, and other media. Led by actor/writer Tyler Esselman, the show morphs from Tony Robbins-style seminar to children’s television programming to New Age voice lesson with reckless abandon.
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Okra Project’s Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund and Tony McDade Mental Health Recovery Fund, which provide Black trans* individuals one-time sessions with a licensed Black therapist, free of cost.
This work will feature Audio Description and Open Captioning.

The artists will be interviewing a representative from Sista Afya Community Mental Wellness in Chicago, an organization that provides support and resources to young adult Black women.
