Welcome to the first edition of Headline’s Quarterly Review. Below you will find information on what we did in 2018, and what we’ve been busy doing since January 2019. We’re releasing our analysis of our media monitoring work, recent analysis of how severe mental illnesses are represented in Irish media, a brief look at a recent media briefing where journalists improved their understanding of media guidelines by 50%, news about further training sessions and lastly a look at the biggest challenges facing media and mental health sectors in 2019. We have also secured dates for the next media guidelines workshops and we are taking bookings for student journalism workshops for the academic year 2019-2020.

We have been making lots of changes in Headline over the last year and we are delighted to be able to share those with you now. If you would like to get in touch with Headline about training, our new website or any other resources you may need email info@headline.ie.

Headline is Ireland’s national programme for responsible reporting, and representation of mental illness and suicide. Our objective is to work as collaboratively as possible with Irish media professionals across print, broadcast, and online platforms to reduce the effects of suicide contagion, and the stigma attached to mental ill health.
