In response to a visit from NSW Mental Health Minister Jai Rowell, The Daily Liberal published an editorial piece about overcoming stigma to raise awareness of mental health issues.

The article, 'Time to break the stigma on mental illness', called on governments to give better consideration to mental illness, particuarly in regional and rural areas.

In order to do this the article says 'old-fashioned taboos, barriers and stereotypes' need to be dropped.

The newspaper showed leadership in calling for action on an issue affecting its community and doing so in a responsible way.

If you've seen responsible reporting like this you can highlight it through SANE media centre's Good News Files.
