How to communicate about mental health

Communicating about mental health by Mindframe

As an industry of communications specialists, our industry has a big role to play in how we communicate about mental health through the content we produce and this guide helps us do so in a safe way.

This useful guide includes details on language to use, help-seeking information to provide and tips for those wanting to share their story in a safe way.

Mindframe is a national program supporting safe media reporting, portrayal and communication about suicide, mental ill-health and alcohol and other drugs.

Mindframe is managed by Everymind and is funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Health under the National Suicide Prevention Leadership and Support Program.
