With one in five Australians diagnosed with mental illness every year, mental illness and suicide-related issues are important topics, which demand fair and accurate reporting.
The SANE Media Centre provides media professionals with advice, information, statistics and comment on mental health or suicide-related issues.
You can contact the SANE Media Centre for:
- Facts, information and statistics about mental illness and suicide prevention
- Expert comment about mental illness and suicide prevention
- Referral to people with lived experience of mental illness, or their carers, for interview
- Information and advice for reporting on mental illness and suicide-related issues
There are a wide range of industry codes and standards covering the reporting of mental illness and suicide-related issues.
SANE Media Centre has collated these resources and best practice case-studies for the media.
The SANE Media Centre is supported by the Australian Government as part of the Mindframe National Media Initiative.
