Thursday, 2nd May 2013, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Venue: SIPBS Hamnett Wing
Come along to the University of Strathclyde to learn more about how researchers at the University and the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) are striving to improve reporting of mental health and suicide by the media. The programme will include short presentations from the NUJ, the media, and mental health and suicide prevention specialists. These will act as a starting point for discussions about the impact that journalism guidelines can have on attitudes to mental illness and the potential for suicide prevention.
This event is a key opportunity to contribute to the debate on the ethical and practice issues surrounding journalists' reporting of such vulnerable people.
By registering for this event, you are also invited to the launch of the book Public Mental Health: Global Perspectives by Lee Knifton and Neil Quinn. For more information please visit the event page.
