Lead Educator

Beth Killian

Beth Killian (she/her) is a Rhode Island based songwriter, youth worker, mentor and advocate. Having recently completed an MSW program at Smith College, Beth is committed to creating and supporting spaces where therapeutic art, music, theater, and dance can be accessible to all humans.

Beth presently works at a teen-center as a group instructor and clinician, encouraging youth and young adults to craft their stories and practice radical vulnerability. In her free time, she is pursuing the folk-rockstar dream of singing in a three-part-harmony acoustic band, and taking care of a pretty rad and overly-energetic pit-mix pup.

She is pumped to be working with AWI as a Movies for Mental Health College facilitator, and is excited to continually encourage honest conversations that organically bring out the wisdom of all participants. As someone who relied on art, music, and creative expression to help her understand her own mental health journey, Beth couldn’t be happier to have found an organization that values the connection between art and mind/body wellness.
