In this inaugural episode, host Gregg Taylor talks with Alexis Hinde, Assistant Business Agent and Field Rep with the Directors Guild of Canada, British Columbia. Alexis was one of the campaigns founding members, and Gregg and Alexis dive into the origins of how Calltime Mental Health came to be and the current work the Society is doing in the film and entertainment industry to meet the unique needs of this sector. Alexis also generously shares with us her own story of hope and recovery, and the impacts of working in film.
The podcast aims to create a safe space for open conversations, amplify important voices, and provide valuable insights into the mental health challenges faced by those working in our industry.
Throughout the season, Gregg will be joined by guests with an intimate knowledge of the film and entertainment sector, and experts with mental health expertise. From financial empowerment and accessing resources during times of crisis, to Indigenous Mental Health and Psychological Health and Safety, each episode will offer valuable perspectives and practical advice.
The Calltime Mental Health Podcast will release a new episode at the end of each month until December. The Podcast will be accessible on popular platforms such as:
