Mindframe and SANE StigmaWatch would like to remind media of the impact of linking mental illhealth with extremist behaviour.
SANE StigmaWatch, along with Mindframe promote the responsible and safe reporting of mental illhealth and suicide. Mental ill-health and suicide are important issues for media to cover and when
these are reported responsibly, the media can help reduce stigma. However, research shows when
mental ill-health and suicide are reported irresponsibly, media stories can do harm. Joint Statement.
