What we talk about when we talk about mental health

2018-04-13 12:00:00 2018-04-13 13:00:00 Europe/Rome What we talk about when we talk about mental health #ijf18 Sono stati fatti enormi progressi nel modo in cui parliamo di salute mentale. Allo stesso tempo, l'argomento rimane stigmatizzato e difficile da comunicare. Spesso continuiamo a lottare con concetti di base come vergogna, patologizzazione e narrazioni vittimiste, sia nelle nostre vite personali che nella raffigurazione mediatica della malattia mentale. Due riviste lanciate nel 2017, Anxy Magazine e Torchlight System, puntano a suscitare nuovi dibattiti sul tema della salute mentale - anche attirando la critica di rendere il tema l'ennesimo argomento alla moda. L'incontro sarà un dibattito partecipato sui modi di trattare la salute mentale: quali parole adottare, cosa possono fare le testate per aiutare le persone a parlare pubblicamente di una materia così delicata - fino alle insidie di vari tipi di copertura mediatica.

What we talk about when we talk about mental health – a workshop about covering mental health in the media.

Huge progress has been made in how we talk about mental health. At the same time, the topic remains both stigmatised and difficult to communicate. Often we still struggle with basic concepts such as shame, pathologisation and narratives of victimhood, both in our personal lives and in media portrayals of mental illness.

Two magazines launched in 2017, Anxy Magazine and Torchlight System, are aiming to stimulate new conversations around mental health. At the same time, they’ve invited criticism of turning mental health issues into just another hip topic.

The session will be a collaborative discussion on ways of talking about about mental health, how we can inscribe a better lexicon of recovery, how publishing can help people to speak openly about these difficult topics – as well as about the pitfalls of various types of media coverage.
