Brief description This project advances knowledge about how the media shapes public and professional understandings and communication practices about mental health issues. Media processes are mostly studied in isolation but this project integrates analyses of media with interviews with lay people, advocacy organisations, expert mental health sources and journalists to identify how mental health knowledge is identified, interpreted and communicated. It will provide an evidence base for policy directed at promoting mental health and challenging stigma, within the context of dynamic change to digital media environments and media use.
