Mindframe (mindframe-media.info) and the Hunter Institute of Mental Health have just launched a new smartphone app that supports busy journalists filing mental illness and suicide stories while on the run.
The app complements existing media resources and aims to further support responsible, accurate and sensitive representation of mental illness and suicide in Australian media. The new app is understood to be the first of its kind internationally developed specifically for the time-poor media industry to allow faster access to Mindframe information, which includes quick reporting guides, facts and statistics, helpseeking information for promoting, and national story sources’ contacts.
The app is free and available on portable Android and Apple devices, for both smartphones and tablets, and can be used both online and offline. Download app here – http://www.mindframe-media.info/home/resource-downloads/media-resources/?a=11269)#sthash.P4K7Pg5N.dpuf
