StigmaWatch promotes the responsible reporting of mental illness and suicide in the Australian media. This service is available to anyone who wishes to report media coverage that stigmatises mental illness or irresponsibly covers suicide to StigmaWatch at sane.org/stigmawatch.
If the media item is found to breach Mindframe media reporting guidelines, StigmaWatch will contact the media outlet involved and provide constructive feedback on how to improve the media item.
Improving the way mental illness and suicide are covered in the media can help change attitudes and encourage people to seek help for mental health concerns.
