Weather update

StigmaWatch received the following response from an editor after a StigmaWatch report let us know a journalist had referred to Melbourne weather as ‘borderline schizophrenic’.

“Yesterday I was made aware of the insensitivity of this comment and removed it immediately. Apologies as this is something I overlooked, but will be much more aware of this in future and inform the writer plus our team of writers about the use of such terms to do with mental illness. I will pass on these (mental health reporting) guidelines as well as I understand the importance of the issue and the damage it could cause if not reported on correctly. Sorry again and thank you for bringing it to our attention.”
