Speaking to the media
If you'd like to hear about opportunities to speak to the media about mental illness, please fill in our activist form and tick the "Appearing in the media" box.
Once you have filled in the form, we will contact you via email when we are approached by journalists who are looking for case studies for articles. We will explain what kind of person the journalist wants to speak to - male/female, age, diagnosis, and so on. Then you can let us know if you think the opportunity is relevant to you.
