Mental Health America
is a leading nonprofit dedicated to helping all people live mentally healthier lives. With a century of service to America and more than 300 affiliates nationwide, they represent a national movement that promotes mental wellness for the health and well-being of the nation-everyday and in times of crisis. I thought some might be interested to read an announcement from the organization. It follows:
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (March 25, 2010)-Mental Health America encourages journalists and media professionals to submit national, state, local and student news and feature stories in print, online radio, television and film for the 2010 Media Awards
Details, including categories and a downloadable entry form, are available at http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/go/about-us/pressroom/media-awards/2010-media-awards. The deadline for submissions has been extended to April 14, 2010
. This year, the number of categories has been expanded to include national websites, local/regional websites and blogs.
Each June at its Annual Conference, Mental Health America recognizes excellence in reporting and portrayals of mental health issues from the previous year.
Entries are judged by a committee of peers selected by Mental Health America for their knowledge of mental health issues, demonstrated excellence in reporting and editorial experience.
Mental Health America will notify winners by the second week in May and will honor those winners at a Media Awards luncheon on Saturday, June 12, 2010, during the 2010 Mental Health America Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
