Welcome to Mindset: Reporting on Mental Health. This website is part of a project created by Canadian journalists for journalists.
Start by reading our concise field guide, available in print or by downloading a copy by clicking on the link in the left sidebar. The website is intended to expand on what you will find there and to encourage discussion.
Mindset is all about doing better journalism. Stories that are more factual, more complete and don’t contribute to stigma. We celebrate journalism that challenges wrong and outdated assumptions about mental illness, provides factual information, and encourages reporting that probes unfairness and systemic flaws: The kind of work we think you probably came into journalism intending to do.
