It’s only one week until the Mind Media Awards 2013 and as sponsors of the event we’re getting pretty excited at Virgin Money Giving HQ.
The Awards honour the best portrayals of mental health problems across all types of media and they’re taking place at the British Film Institute next Monday 18 November. They’re a celebration of all media professionals that have embraced the challenging subject rather than shying away from it.
The shortlist of nominations has been drawn, it includes some informative shows, dramas and documentaries which tackle the subject of mental health head on.
All the winners on the night will be announced by Scott Mills from BBC Radio 1. Scott has himself battled with anxiety and panic attacks from a young age and has helped lots of other people to speak out through the publication of his autobiography Love You Bye.
