Priority population groups


Social and cultural factors have a significant influence upon mental health and wellbeing.

To be safe and responsible, reporting about mental illness and suicide in different population groups should also consider the social and cultural reporting protocols.

The Mindframe National Media Initiative recognises the important role played by both mainstream and diverse media in providing socially and culturally safe message about mental health and wellbeing, as well as prevention of suicide.
