Training Journalists on the Complexities of Mental Health

Date: 07/13/2016

Summary: Even though one in five adults in the United States experiences mental illness, the disease continues to be highly stigmatized. And when the mentally ill cross paths with the criminal justice system, the consequences can be devastating.

Location: DEADLINE

Organization: National Press Foundation

Description: The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals.
