Hiding in Plain Sight film coverMHA’s 2022 Media Award recognizes journalists, authors, digital platforms, media outlets, television shows and filmmakers that have tackled the issues of mental illness and addiction – and in doing so, have educated, informed, and broken down stigma and shame around these issues.

MHA is awarding the Media Award to Well Beings & Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness (executive producer Ken Burns, directors and co-producers Erik Ewers and Christopher Loren Ewers, WETA SVP and chief national content officer John Wilson, and WETA executive producer, special projects, Tom Chiodo) for their two-part, four-hour film. The film is part of Well Beings, a national campaign from public media to demystify and destigmatize physical and mental health through storytelling.
