Calltime Mental Health is thrilled to announce the launch of the new Calltime Mental Health Podcast, a platform dedicated to providing support, information, and reducing stigma related to mental health and substance concerns within the film and entertainment industry. For over five years, we’ve been expanding the reach and content of our campaign to promote mental wellness, and this podcast is an exciting new addition to our efforts.
Hosted by Gregg Taylor, Clinical Counselor, President of FSEAP Vancouver, and consultant to Calltime Mental Health, 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 first episode, launching June 26, 2023, will feature Alexis Hinde, Assistant Business Agent at the Directors Guild of Canada, British Columbia (DGCBC) as she talks about the realities of working in the film sector, how the Calltime Campaign came about, her personal story of challenge and recovery, and tips for getting help.
