HTP Episode 161 – Lisa N. Alexander

Lisa N. Alexander is a filmmaker assembling the independent project My Father the Queen. The movie tells the story of a black family in the 1960s, led by a father who is a member of the LGBTQ community. The story reflects, not only his personal struggles, but the impact his identity has on his family and community. In Lisa’s words, the story frames his conflict from a mental health perspective, and she and I spend time talking about how mental health has been reflected in film historically. With My Father the Queen in pre-production, Lisa describes her efforts in putting together her script and lining up the business end of filmmaking—certainly not the most rewarding part of independent filmmaking, but one of the most crucial.

HTP Episode 112 – Bekah George

Bekah George is a life coach and therapist.  She comes to Hungry Trilobyte to share her experience with mental health care at Shear Visions Coaching.  She and I get into the specifics of why it is so difficult to discuss mental health care in our culture, and how we can make it easier to approach care.  We get into the specifics of what separates a therapist from a coach, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of taking a faith-based approach.

The chat I had with Bekah is the first part of a series I’m calling #Fans4Healing.  This is a project that examines how living in a fandom has helped people with depression, anxiety, and other mental health struggles.
