Newsroom managers are becoming increasingly aware of the need for mental health support resources for their journalists, but wellbeing is often a distant priority when deadlines are looming fast and a newscast to air every day.

This session speaks to both journalists and newsroom managers, offering practical tips and a safe place to discuss journalists’ mental health challenges — and triumphs.
