Calltime: Mental Health is an initiative created by British Columbia’s motion picture industry unions, driven by our vision statement: We envision a future where motion picture industry workers come together as a Community of Care to help those with mental illness and substance abuse issues; a culture where everyone feels safe at work; and supported and empowered to ask for and offer help; where union staff and department managers and supervisors have access to training and resources to adequately address issues as they arise; and where impairment at work is seen as an occupational health and safety issue and is neither accepted nor condoned.
