In July, Rick Goldsmith was selected for the coveted 2013-14 Rosalynn Carter Fellowship for Mental Health Journalism, for the production of his film, Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw. Read Rick Goldsmith’s blog about Mind/Game on the Carter Center website.
The Carter fellowships were established to “develop a cadre of journalists who can have a significant impact on the public’s understanding of mental illnesses” as part of a larger program “to provide the public with accurate and balanced depictions of those with mental illnesses to reduce stigma and discrimination.”
The year-long fellowship will give Rick the opportunity to consult with, and receive training from, leading mental health and journalism experts, which will enrich the depth, impact and reach of his film.
