noir et blancI am a Psychiatric Nurse working with Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust. I originally hail from Cameroon and also hold a Degree in Journalism. As an RMN my particular area of interest coming into Journalism is looking at how the media report on issues concerning mental illness, how generally negative they are, and how their portrayal helps perpetuate negative stereotypes. One in four people suffer with a mental illness and the media therefore need to be more sensitive and fairer in their portrayal of the issue. This is my particular area of interest. Having worked with mentally ill people for nearly a decade, I have seen first hand what these negative stereotypes do to reduce their outcomes.
