The Visual Effects Society in partnership with the Québec Film and Television Council, have created Reignite Yourself, a five-part webinar series to destigmatize mental health and provide industry support. The episodes cover a spectrum of issues around mental health, including handling stress and anxiety, dealing with high-pressure situations, maintaining work-life balance, empathy, handling negative feedback and creating a growth mindset through confidence building and motivation.
