Univision Atlanta’s Amanda Ramirez took advantage of the resources and experts available through the Rosalynn Carter Fellowships for Mental Health Journalism to produce an in-depth and well received television news series exploring mental health in the Latino community.
As part of an international effort to reduce stigma and discrimination, the fellowships aim to increase accurate reporting on mental health issues. Recipients of the fellowship have produced award-winning books, television and radio series, and newspaper articles covering a variety of topics such as suicide, PTSD, aging, and mental health care for the homeless.
