Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Journalism Fellows Matching Challenge

We invite you to make a gift to support the Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Journalism Fellows! The Carter Center is pleased to announce a challenge grant of $100,000 by Carter Center supporters Larry and Diana Brown.

The mental health journalism fellowships program was founded in 1996 by former First Lady Rosalynn Carter based on an essential premise: give journalists the resources they need to report on mental health — one of the world’s most underreported health issues — to help dismantle through storytelling the stigma that millions of people face every day.

Progress in the Fight Against Mental Health Stigma

Over the past two decades, more than 220 journalists from the United States, Latin America, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Romania, and South Africa have been awarded the highly-competitive fellowships. Today, our fellows work within their newsrooms and beyond to report on mental health challenges and transform their communities in the process.

Our goals are to:

1. Increase effective and accurate reporting on behavioral health issues

2. Equip journalists with the tools needed to produce high-quality work that reflects an understanding of behavioral health

3. Develop a diverse cohort of better-informed journalists who can more effectively report on behavioral health across evolving and emerging platforms

Thank you for your generous donation to support the Rosalynn Carter Fellowships for Mental Health Journalism Program.
