Mind Media Awards 2019 Website Header 1200x 360px (1)

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.

You can still stream the awards and watch as host Greg James kicked off a night of celebrations, to award the very best portrayals and reporting of mental health in the media this past year.

Why the Mind Media Awards matter

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.
