Public Sector: Mental Health Media sets up PR shop

A new ’one-stop PR shop’ is being set up to teach PR skills to people who have been in psychiatric care. The new unit is being set up by the charity Mental Health Media with Lottery funding and aims to train 4,000 people over three years in skills such as giving interviews, and writing press releases. Karen Mattison, manager of Mental Health Media, says the idea is to change public opinion about those living in the community who have had mental health problems by getting their voices heard. The new unit is looking for a manager, a press officer and a training officer.
