Are you a journalist or a creative artist who wants to change attitudes towards people living with mental distress?

The New Zealand Mental Health Media Grants were first established in 2007 as a partnership between the Mental Health Foundation and the Like Minds, Like Mine Programme.

Previous projects have been successful in challenging people’s perceptions of the experience of mental distress and the journey to recovery by producing emotive and thought-provoking current affairs packages, plays, music, art exhibitions, magazine articles, documentaries and more.

Take a look at some of our creative and journalism grant recipients’ work from the past decade.

The 2019 Media Grants are now open and receiving applications, and close on Friday, 11 October.
