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 offer a unique opportunity to bring your creative ideas to life and make a positive impact on the lives of Kiwis who live with mental distress.

Use your talents, skills and experience to reduce stigma and discrimination and make Aotearoa a more accepting and inclusive place for people who experience mental distress.

In 2018 there are three journalism grants and two creative grants on offer, worth up to $10,000 each.

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.

Register your interest here to receive a 2018 application pack when available.

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.
