Hey there, time traveller!

Free Press reporter Mike McIntyre is one of seven finalists for the Mindset Award for Workplace Mental Health Reporting, which recognizes outstanding reporting on mental health issues in the workplace.

The $1,000 prize is offered by the Canadian Journalism Forum on Violence and Trauma.

McIntyre’s story, Pushed to the Brink, ran in the Free Press in July 2017. It cast light on the mental health problems of Crown Attorneys. It featured Nicole Roch, once in charge of many of Manitoba’s most important criminal files, now on long-term disability as a result of work-related PTSD.

The seven finalists were chosen from a total of 24 applications received from all parts of the country.

"The field this year is quite outstanding," said Cliff Lonsdale, the Forum’s president. "Our triage group had some very difficult decisions to make in choosing the finalists. It speaks to the growing attention these issues are receiving in the media, and the high quality of the work."


An independent jury is now considering the finalists and the award for 2017 will be presented in May 2018 at the national conference of the Canadian Association of Journalists in Toronto.
