Ending the judgement and shame around mental distress

The Mental Health Media Grants or Pūtea Pāpāho are awarded to people passionate about reducing discrimination against, and increasing social inclusion towards, New Zealanders with mental distress or illness.

Previous winning 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.

Each Media Grant offers up to $10,000 NZD, as well as a fellowship and project guidance from the Mental Health Foundation on behalf of Like Minds, Like Mine.

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

The Pūtea Pāpāho/Mental Health Media Grants are closed for 2020.
