The Mental Health Council of Australia (MHCA) has today welcomed the release of Mindframe’s latest resource for media professionals and journalists for reporting suicide and mental illness. “Language can have a significant impact on how we think about an issue. We acknowledge that the language we use around mental health can impact people in a detrimental way. Casual misuse can actually act as a barrier to people seeking help, and impact their confidence in their recovery journey, ” Frank Quinlan, CEO of the MHCA said.
