Apply for a Mental Health Journalism Fellowship at Carter CenterApplications from U.S. residents are now being accepted for six one-year journalism fellowships with the Carter Center’s Mental Health Program.

These fellowships aim to enhance public understanding of mental health issues and reduce stigma and discrimination against people with mental illnesses through balanced and accurate reporting. The postmark deadline for applications is April 19, 2010, and the fellowship recipients will be announced July 9, 2010. The 2010-2011 fellowship year begins in September 2010.

“Informed journalists can have a significant impact on public understanding of mental health issues, as they shape debate and trends with the words and pictures they convey,” says former First Lady and Carter Center Mental Health Program Founder Rosalynn Carter.
