Creating a Documentary Film about Caregiving and Mental Health (HLOL #241)

Richard Lui is an award-winning journalist with more than 30 years in media, technology, and business. He has served as a television news anchor at MSNBC, NBC News, and CNN Worldwide. Among his many accomplishments, Lui spent 15 years in business, serves on boards at non-profit organizations and for-profit firms, and is an ambassador for non-government organizations (NGO’s) focusing on issues of gender equality and human trafficking. Lui is author of the book Enough About Me and director of two documentary films. His first film SkyBlossom, was inspired by his own long-distance caregiving for his father. The second film Unconditional: When Minds Hurt, Love Heals deals with issues of mental health and family caregiving.

In this podcast, Richard Lui talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • The experience of learning about caregiving as a family member. That includes the need to interact with a team of health professionals and develop a plan for the family to address the many aspects of caregiving.
  • The decision to create a documentary film about this experience. How the powerful medium of film can highlight what might otherwise be considered as a “ho-hum” topic of family caregiving.
  • The importance of educating others that mental health can be a strength, not just a challenge.

More ways to learn:

  • Unconditional: When Minds Hurt, Love Heals. This film has been, or soon will be, screened at AMC theatres, Universal Studios, the White House, the US Capital, MSNBC, the United Nations, and the European Parliament. It is available for streaming on multiple platforms including Amazon Prime and PBS Passport.
  • SkyBlossom. As described on its website, this is “an inspiring film on children taking care of family living with disabilities.”
  • Enough About Me: The Unexpected Power of Selflessness, a book by Richard Lui, published 2021.

Health Literacy from A to Z: Practical Ways to Communicate Your Health Message, Third Edition, a book by Helen Osborne. Especially relevant to this podcast is the chapter, “Patient and Family Perspective.”
