Still a long way to go....,
« on: 24 24, 2016, 12 »
Kanye West taken to LA hospital following disturbance call

Just struck me the mix in response to this story as opposed to the general positive results seen from recent news stories especially regarding male mental health. It seems some prejudices run quite deep if you're not seen as a 'good person' or 'down to earth' maybe.

Just a conversation starter.

So much prejudice surrounding mental health in the press which is used as leverage to help them juice yo their story, this in turn increases even more stigma.

As for a way to improve reporting I'm stumped the press seem to very much have a free rein..

It's when the Daily Mail start writing positively about mental health - then you know you've really made progress!
