Last year's Awards

Last year's winners were announced in a ceremony at The Troxy on Monday 14 November 2016 that brought together celebrities, industry professionals and people who have shared their personal experiences of mental health problems in the media.

Cricketing legend Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff MBE hosted the evening with guests including Paul Whitehouse, Grayson Perry and Alastair Campbell. Afterwards Freddie said: "It’s been an amazing honour to host the Mind Media Awards, particularly because of the massive amount of inspirational and touching work we’ve seen this year."

Congratulations to all the 2016 winners and nominees, who through compelling, honest and well-crafted work made a contribution to changing attitudes and tackling mental health stigma. And a special thank-you to our sponsors for making it all possible.
