Words Matter: Talking About Mental Health (April 21, 2016)

One simple way we can help people dealing with mental illness is by choosing our words with care. How we speak and write about mental illness can help either reinforce or break down stereotypes. The Carter Center has long worked to reduce stigma by providing fellowships to journalists covering mental health. Learn more about their work and discover ways to talk about mental health sensitively. Rebecca Palpant Shimkets, associate director of The Rosalynn Carter Fellowships for Mental Health Journalism, moderates. Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter introduces the program.

Panelists include:
- Misty Williams, Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter and 2014/15 Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Fellow
- Hank Klibanoff, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, member of the Rosalynn Carter Fellowships Advisory Board
- Dr. Glenda Wrenn, director, Division of Behavioral Health, Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine (clinical psychiatrist)

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
