Mindframe and Cracks in the Ice have released new guidelines to inform, support and empower media to report safely and responsibly about crystal methamphetamine in ways which minimise harm, stigma and discrimination while maximising help-seeking behaviour.
As media continue to cover the incident, which occurred yesterday (19 February 2020) in Camp Hill, Queensland Mindframe urges media to avoid including explicit information that may be harmful to vulnerable audiences.
Mindframe wishes to acknowledge the grief and loss felt in the communities affected following the incident that occurred in Camp Hill, Queensland this morning. We would like to encourage media to be mindful of the Mindframe guidelines in relation to coverage around this incident.
Mindframe wishes to endorse the statement from the family of Wilson Gavin and their call for compassion for all impacted communities at this time.
Mindframe is aware that media reports are circulating around a suspected death relating to the protests at Brisbane Library over the weekend.
