With 2020 drawing to a close, we would like to thank everyone who has engaged with Mindframe this year and worked to ensure responsible reporting and communication about suicide, mental ill-health and Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD).
While the unexpected death of Melinda Coleman, mother of Netflix star Daisy Coleman, is a story of public interest and will receive ongoing coverage, it is important media report responsibly.
The Awards program recognises the best work of student journalists in Australia. Each year Mindframe presents two prizes for safe and responsible mental health and suicide prevention reporting to an undergraduate and postgraduate recipient.
The annual JERAA Conference is an opportunity to learn from leaders in journalism research, practice and education. Dr Elizabeth Paton will be presenting three papers on Friday, 4 December.
The Mindframe team wish to acknowledge the grief and loss of family, friends and community who have been impacted by the recent death of a young Aboriginal girl as reported in the media.
