Counselling Directory, part of the Happiful family are sponsoring and presenting the Documentary award.  The shortlisted documentaries are; David Harewood: Psychosis and Me, Dr Chris and Dr X and Investigate: Mental Health Special, Healing Minds, Iraq: A State of Mind and Louis Theroux: Mothers on the Edge. Happiful Columnist Grace Victory will announce the winning documentary at Wednesday’s ceremony.

Lucy Donoughue, Happiful Head of Content and Communications, said; “Counselling Directory is delighted to sponsor the Documentary Category at this year’s Mind Media Awards. This event is such a wonderful way to highlight the amazing work taking place across the media and from charities and individuals, to educate people about mental health and illness, without further stigmatising the subject.

It’s also amazing for Happiful Magazine be shortlisted for the Publication Award - and in the terrific company of Refinery 29, The Daily Telegraph, JPI Media and Bauer Media. We feel very honoured.

We look forward to meeting everyone on the evening and hearing more about their work - and thank Mind for this opportunity. They are an amazing organisation”
