Journalism Prize

The NCPF Medical Journalism Award recognizes and encourages outstanding journalism that promotes mental health and contributes to the understanding of psychoanalysis among the general public. A $1,000 award is given annually to a student at the UNC-CH School of Journalism and Mass Communication who presents the strongest proposal for a journalism project related to mental health in any media.

Past awards have been given for projects addressing the role of psychotherapy in the treatment of dementia, the psychology of weight loss, parenting within the culture of autism, and the role of psychotherapy in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder.
