Cold Feet, Hollyoaks, Victoria Derbyshire, Bryony Gordon and I, Daniel Blake were among the winners at the 2017 Mind Media Awards. The ceremony, hosted by Mind Ambassador Fearne Cotton was held at the ODEON Leicester Square.
Prince Harry presented the Speaking Out Award to the ten runners who featured in the BBC One documentary Mind over Marathon. It is the first time that we have awarded more than one winner, but we wanted to recognise the whole group as a symbol of their remarkable achievements.
There was also a new award this year, as we came together with 2016 winners ITV’s Loose Women to launch the Lighten the Load Hero award. This award celebrates the everyday heroes who support those of us living with mental health problems and was presented to Leeanne Tomlinson who was nominated by her colleague Susan Kirlew.
