About the Mind HK Media Awards
On November 13 2019, we will host the Mind HK Media Awards in Hong Kong at the FCC.
The Awards will celebrate journalists in Hong Kong who are challenging perceptions of mental health in their work. The event will work to encourage positive, ethical and balanced portrayals of mental health in the local media, to help break down stigma and promote more open conversations around mental illness.
