We know that media stories can have a huge impact on people's mental health, prompting them to start conversations, seek help and support each other.
That's why we hold the Mind Media Awards, to recognise and celebrate the best representations of mental health across TV, radio, print and online.
This year, in place of our usual event, we’re taking a look back at the lifetime of the awards and celebrating some of the stories which have helped to shape everyone’s understanding of mental health.
The 2019 Bupa Mind Media Awards were hosted by Radio DJ, TV presenter and author Greg James, and held at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at London's Southbank Centre.
Our judges and shortlist panels were blown away by the record number of entries from those with personal experience of mental health problems.
Recent polling carried out for Mind showed that people believe journalists have more influence over public attitudes to mental health than politicians do. Where negative coverage can have a devastating effect on people's lives, accurate, positive portrayals of mental health can be a lifeline.
Julia Lamb, Media Engagement and Awards Manager, explains why we hold the Media Awards and have done for over 20 years.
The Mind Media Awards have been running for over 20 years and have grown in profile and reach year on year.
