We're Mind, the mental health charity. We exist to make sure anyone with a mental health problem gets support and respect.

We know that media reports 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 every year, to recognise and celebrate the best possible representations of mental health across TV, radio, print and online.

Award categories

This year we will be presenting awards in 11 categories: Digital champion, Documentary, Drama, Entertainment, Journalist, News and current affairs, Podcast *new for 2018*, Publication, Radio, Soaps and continuing series and Student journalist.

Plus we will recognise two individuals in our special awards: Making a Difference and Speaking Out.

Last year's event
