for better mental health

Publication in memory of Sally Brampton - Mind Media Awards 2016 Winner

CALMzine

CALMzine magazine is written with humour and insight by and for young men. It features pieces about depression, anxiety, OCD, suicidal feelings and panic attacks and does so in a way which is readable, funny and inspiring.

"CALMzine is a potentially life changing magazine. Men might pick it up in Top Man and do something about their own mental health."

- Judge's comment

With thanks

Mind and the award judges would like to give special thanks to the other entrants:

Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News

Eastern Daily Press' mental health campaign investigated the standard of service people with mental health problems were receiving in the region. They set up an investigative unit to delve into the issue and spent weeks speaking to carers and service users, meeting organisations and spent time with the local Mind in Norwich.

Huffington Post

Huffington Post's ongoing initiative 'Young Minds Matter' discusses the problems, causes and solutions to the stigma surrounding the UK's mental health problem amongst children. Huffington Post enlisted the Duchess of Cambridge to act as guest editor for the day in February 2016 as well as utilising this to get a number of high profile individuals to blog, including Michelle Obama.

Fabulous magazine

Fabulous covered a wide range of mental health issues, often written from the first person with subjects including post-natal depression, PTSD and postpartum psychosis among many others. They took an in-depth look at the emotional impact of living with mental health problems from the perspective of the individual and their loved ones.
