Five x $10K Media Grants up for Grabs

MEDIA RELEASE: 8 July 2015
Mental Health Foundation of NZ

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

Five grants worth up to $10,000 each are now available for three journalism and two creative projects focusing on mental health issues.

The Mental Health Foundation (MHF) welcomes project proposals from journalists, photojournalists and those freelancing in print, radio or TV media; as well as artists, creative writers, musicians, and performers. Journalism, photojournalism and creative students may also apply.

“A new survey shows New Zealanders are less accepting of mental illness than they are of sexuality and religion, so in 2015 we have up to $50,000 available thanks to ongoing sponsorship from the Frozen Funds Charitable Trust and support from the Like Minds, Like Mine national programme,” MHF chief executive Judi Clements says.
