Media Opportunity: Women Living with Mental Illness
Media Opportunity : Women, Ages 30 to 50
A national magazine is developing as told to profiles of women, ages 30 to 50, who are living with mental illness.
Aside from the age requirement, candidates for interviews can have any diagnosis such as major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder or borderline personality disorder. They need to be willing to have their name and city or town published and possibly a photograph along with their personal story.
Interviews will cover the onset of illness, treatment, struggles, hopes and various levels of recovery.
If you are interested, please send a short summary up to 400 words of your personal story by Thurs., Sept. 29 to Bob Carolla at NAMI Media Relations: bobc(at)nami.org.
Please include your name, email address, phone number and geographic location. Submissions will be forwarded to the magazine writer. Only some candidates will end up being interviewed, but all submissions will be considered.
Please also forward this notice to anyone who might be interested.
