Visit the Reitman Centre/ Ontario Enhancing Care Program “Dementia Carers” website to have a look at all 9 of the videos in this Digital Health award winning series: Your Questions Answered – A Mental Health Video Series for Family Caregivers of Someone Living with Dementia
I produced this inspiring health education video series in intimate collaboration with all 7 mental health clinicians at the Reitman Centre, along with the Reitman Centre’s Program Manager, Ed McAnanama and L.J. Nelles, an inspiring mental health clincian and educator who helped to develop the ground breaking CARERS program at the Reitman Centre.
Beyond the video production itself, I also acted as the Lead Editor, working directly with each clinician who wrote and brought their personal expertise and clinical voice and insight to each area of focus. From ideation/ development to finished product, both in video format and in the blog posts that accompanied each – we were focused on not only managing the accuracy and helpfulness of the content but also on communicating the critical sense of empathy and compassion that is fundamental to their work with highly stressed and overwhelmed family caregivers.
