    I would like to add to Melissa’s extensive blog about public health journalism and alert Crokey’s devout readers to the critical support and advice that the National Mindframe Initiative is providing to media professionals.

    The Mindframe Initiative is a comprehensive strategy that aims to influence media representation of issues related to mental illness and suicide, encouraging responsible, accurate and sensitive portrayals. It has enormous support from the media and is considered to a ground breaking program by communication specialsts working within mental health and suicide prevention organisations, governmetn departments and media outlets.

    Mindframe also provides resources that have been specifically developed in consultation with journalists to inform and advise on accurate representation of mental health and suicide in Australia.
