MABJ GENERAL BODY MEETING: MENTAL HEALTH: APRIL

On Saturday, April 29th, MABJ held a general body meeting, expounding on the subject of mental health in the workplace. The theme was “Media and Mental Health: How the Epidemic is Impacting our Journalists.” Leon Freeman, a Clinical Supervisor with Youth Dimensions, spoke about the subject. 

We discussed the following; What’s aired during the first 5 minutes of a newscast, how covering those topics affect the journalists’ psyche, etc.

The meeting’s topic opened a much needed discussion on how a job can affect the personal life and relationships of a journalist.

Congratulations to WMC’s Jerry Askin for being named the Journalist of the Month.
