Mindset: Reporting on Mental Health

Launched April 2014: Mindset: Reporting on Mental Health

Our new bilingual project on mental health reporting in Canada -- produced by journalists for journalists, journalism educators and students

Please visit our new Mindset website to find out more. You can download a field guide for quick reference and advice -- or dig into the website for deeper context and resources. And you can help build the project by sharing best practices, suggesting a discussion group or posing a question for a mentor.

A number of launch events have been held across Canada. The first included a reception and panel discussion on 24 April at CBC Toronto; two special sessions in May at the CAJ annual conference in Vancouver; the French-language event for En-Tête : Reportage et santé mentale, was held in Montréal on 26 May in association with the FPJQand a one-day symposium was held in conjunction with King's College School of Journalism in Halifax in October, 2014. More events are being planned for 2015. 

Editorial control of Mindset rests entirely with the Canadian Journalism Forum on Violence and Trauma. We count senior journalists and mental health professionals among our membership and directors.

Our media partner in this project is CBC News. Mindset was made possible, in part, by funding from the Mental Health Commission of Canada, provided to MHCC by a grant from Health Canada.
