Rebecca Day, in conversation with Chris G Parkhurst 

Mental Health & the Documentary Filmmaker 

We doc filmmakers are no strangers to mental health. Whether by the very nature of being doc filmmakers or from the subjects of our documentaries, we’re often dealing with levels of anxiety, stress, and/or depression on a daily basis.

Still it’s not something that we often openly talk about. That is, not until recently, as more and more doc filmmakers and more and more documentary organisations are having open and honest discussions about the topic of mental health as it related to independent documentary filmmakers.

And our guest, documentary filmmaker and psychotherapist, Rebecca Day (Film in Mind) is often leading these discussions!

Enjoy today’s episode as we I delve into this immensely important topic that may, in fact, be more relevant now than ever!’
