Dear MindSite News Reader,
Since MindSite News launched less than a year ago, we’ve built a newsroom, established a digital presence online and across social media, published more than 100 original stories and created two newsletters! None of this work would be possible without the support of generous readers like you.
As the only U.S. news site dedicated exclusively to reporting on mental health, we’re pushing the needle toward urgently needed change. We do this in two ways: 1) By investigating and exposing the failings and flaws of our fractured mental health system. 2) By bringing to light innovative solutions that have the potential to address these issues and bring effective programs and policies to scale.
This kind of reporting is resource-intensive, requiring skill and time, but it can help hold powerful institutions and actors accountable and make the case for new approaches. Please support this essential work today.
MindSite News is positioned to become the trusted, authoritative source of mental health news and information for all Americans. Few issues are as poorly understood, yet the mental health crisis in the U.S. has been unfolding at a time when newspapers and other media are downsizing, and journalism jobs are being eliminated. MindSite News is filling this void and creating a national vehicle for rigorous, in-depth reporting on mental health, bringing focus, expertise and deep journalistic experience to a key area of public interest.
Please consider becoming an early supporter of our work today as we look toward growth and impact in our second year. Any amount helps and will go a long way toward growing our newsroom and increasing our capacity to report and share stories, reach people and help create change.
Rob Waters and Diana Hembree, MindSite News co-editors,
and the entire MindSite News team
