Anne-Marie Ianzito, Coordinator of Blue Light at Tyneside and Northumberland Mind, attended the Virgin Money Giving Mind Media Awards 2017 event in London as representing Tyneside and Northumberland Mind's workplace wellbeing work:
"This was a very exciting evening in which radio, entertainment, journalism/student journalism, drama, publications, news/current affairs, soaps, films, digital champions, and documentaries were celebrated in terms of their accurate, sensitive, and anti-stigmatising portrayal of mental health in the media. The event also celebrated inspiring people with lived experience, such as Bryony Gordon (author of Mad World) who challenge the status quo and bring their own mental health struggles out into the open. Highlights of the evening were listening to Paul Farmer, Mind CEO, Stephen Fry and Fearne Cotton, Mind Ambassadors, and Prince Harry who has recently has influenced millions with sharing of his own mental health struggles in the Heads Together campaign."
Prince Harry presented the Speaking Out Award at the event celebrating the very best reporting and portrayals of mental health in the media. To know more about the award winners, click HERE.
