Are you able to share your story with a journalist to promote more positive coverage of mental health?
Mind’s Media team is responsible for challenging public perceptions about mental health and raising awareness about mental health issues.
Setting up media interviews with people who have experience of mental distress gives us the chance to present the real picture of what mental health problems are and increase public understanding. Arranging for a journalist to speak with someone with direct experience can be crucial in getting them to understand the issues.
We are fortunate to have a network of media volunteers who are happy to talk to the media about their experiences. However, sometimes we get requests that our existing pool of first-rate volunteers can’t meet.
We are not currently looking for any volunteers for media opportunities, but do check back here soon as we regularly update this section.
The fine print
The opportunities posted here tend to be quite specific and have tight deadlines – that’s the nature of working with the media. If your experiences match one of our posts and you would like to get involved, please email the Mind Media team or call us on 020 8522 1743.
