Tough Talk: Season 1, A Series About Men's Mental Health (trailer)


Tough Talk is a documentary series created to reduce the stigma surrounding men's mental health. Sam O'Sullivan is a Kiwi psychologist who gets off the beaten track and travels in his van around his home country of New Zealand to film conversations with everyday men about their stories. He has conversations about their challenges, intending to show it's normal to struggle with our mental health. He also discovers what tools they use to take care of their own mental health.

Sam also creates free tools for the community to use for their own mental health.

Therapy can be expensive and inaccessible, so one of our mission's is to make free tools for the community. Tough Talk created a free online course called the Focus Toolkit. It's an online therapeutic course that teaches you to apply mindfulness and psychological tools in your everyday life.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide free access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 20 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a very, very tiny Netflix for world changers, but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!

Cheers,  Tim Hjersted
