Documentary Filmmaker Looking for Social Workers
Online television show host Nickeisha Urquhart is looking for female social workers who are willing to participate in documentaries and talk to others about dealing with depression and anxiety, eating disorders, abuse, bullying, self esteem and body image, and other issues.
“I don’t think there is enough attention or help for people who are dealing with them,” said Urquhart, 32, who lives in Toronto. “And they feel as if they are the only ones who are different and don’t seek attention or help.”
Urquhart created and hosted an online television program called “Strength of a Woman,” which brought women entrepreneurs on air to talk about their achievements and inspire others.
After recovering from a thyroidectomy Urquhart, who has suffered from bouts of depression in the past, decided to pursue her dream of filming documentaries featuring women who could talk to others about depression and other life challenges.
Urquhart is calling her project “She Fi8hters.”
Social workers who take part in her documentaries should be prepared to do public speaking before small groups on topics they are interested in, Urquhart said. They will be paid for speaking engagements and for facilitating classes.
