Mindset Media Guide – Mindset-mediaguide.ca.

By Tamara Baluja, Associate Editor

Mindset: Reporting on Mental Health is designed for general-assignment reporters – the most likely first-responders when news that may turn out to involve mental illness breaks. Moderator David Common, CBC News correspondent and host of the World Report, along with panellists André Picard, public health reporter and columnist at The Globe and Mail, Karen Liberman, speaker/mental health expert, and Dr. Anthony Feinstein, professor of psychiatry at University of Toronto and expert on the psychological health of conflict reporters), will discuss this guide to mental health reporting.

You can also follow along with the audio feed here.

To get a sense of why we need this guide called Mindset, read this excellent primer from Cliff Lonsdale: Why a journalist’s words matter when reporting on mental health
