ABC Radio Brisbane interview - What images should we use to portray mental illness?

Type ‘mental illness’ into an internet image search and you will see pictures of people in the dark or in a corner, holding their head in their hands. Is this how Australians want mental illness to be portrayed? SANE is asking what the public think is a fair and accurate portrayal of mental illness in a new survey, part of the Picture This project.

SANE's Director of Communications, Dr Paul Morgan, spoke with ABC Radio's Sarah Howells explaining the rationale behind Picture This.
