Talk Therapy TV is forming a media team to produce and edit our TV show on mental health awareness and education. We have had highly respected guests on the show including the New York State Mental Health Commissioner; but the quality of the production is in the hands of the cameramen, script writers, and editors. Volunteers will learn a lot about mental illness and will be helping to get the message out to the public in a polished and professional manner.
If you are interested in joining our media team, please read below to see if you qualify.
Commitment: We know you are very busy. While consistency is important, we are very flexible. You can volunteer as little or as frequently as you like, however we ask that when you make a commitment, you show up. A day of shooting may depend on you.
Experience: Most media team crew positions require at least an entry-level knowledge, however there are some spots open for individuals who are interested in helping out but have no prior experience. Basic "on-the-job" training is available to all media team crew members. (See below for specific requirements)
