What you can do about mental health stigma in the media
Everyone is our eyes and ears. The SANE StigmaWatch program works with all media, to ensure safe and responsible reporting of mental illness and suicide. People can take a stand by engaging with StigmaWatch. Don’t just wait for stigma to happen. Watch for it. Be prepared for it. Know where you think it’s going to happen. And then contact StigmaWatch – they are an award-winning program. As a person with lived experience, I can only do so much. A person who is a carer… they can only do so much. We need your eyes and ears to help us eradicate the stigma surrounding mental illness.
