Media guidelines: Portrayal of people living with mental illness and mental health issues in Aotearoa.

The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand (MHF) has launched media guidelines to equip journalists with the confidence and understanding to report on mental illness and mental health issues safely, accurately and respectfully.

The new content including the literature that informed the guidelines, as well as downloadable PDF versions of the full guidelines and checklist are available online.
