Broadcasters and journalists contribute to the way we understand mental distress and have the power to change hearts and minds. The best programmes give us the real story about mental health, told by those who know. They shed light on the hidden, uncover injustice and prejudice, and have an enormous impact on the people they reach.
The Mind Mental Health Media Awards celebrate the best portrayal of mental distress, and reporting of mental health in broadcast media and digital media.
Have you watched a television programme, caught something on the radio or seen something online that you felt could make a difference to the perception and understanding of mental health? If so, tell us about it and we’ll ask the team or individual that created it to enter this year’s Mind Mental Health Media Awards.
To be eligible for the Awards, the entry must have been transmitted on television or radio or been accessible online in the UK, between 7 June 2009 and 7 June 2010. The closing date for this year’s entries is 16 July 2010, so if you have a suggestion for us, get it to us quickly.
