How media can assist our campaign
The media plays an important role in influencing public perceptions around mental illness. A conscious effort needs to be made by all forms of media not to not use words such as “crazy”, “nuts”, and “schizo”. For example referring to a criminal as a “mad man” in a news broadcast only inspires negative connotations toward mental illness. These terms create negative attitudes in general, and those attitudes may transfer to those who are living with a mental illness.
To assist us in our campaign the media can also help build knowledge by covering mental health topics such as:
- How to recognize the signs of depression
- How to beat the “winter blues”
- How to find balance
- How to deal with stress appropriately

We also invite the media to help spread our message by running our campaign advertisements. For samples of the ads, click here.
