If you see a media report, ad, or online content you feel is inappropriate and stigmatises mental illness, it may be in breach of an industry code or guideline.

Government legislation and industry codes of practice cover all media content and the presentation of news and entertainment programs. This includes discrimination or the representation of groups or individuals, and the classification of material based on suitability to the audience.

If you intend to contact a media outlet directly, informing them of the offence caused, it often helps to cite the code or guideline the report may have breached.
