Solutions Journalism Collaborative Summit: Reporting on Caregiving and Mental Health

September 19 @ 12:00 pm - September 20 @ 2:30 pm

Please join fellow journalists for two days of meaningful conversations about how to collaborate and apply the principles of Solutions Journalism to important issues in your community, such as mental health and caregiving for older adults.

David Bornstein, co-founder and CEO of the Solutions Journalism Network, will kick off the Summit by discussing the role Solutions Journalism can play in helping news organizations confront evolving challenges in the news around trust, audience engagement, equity and sustainability.

Amy Goyer, AARP’s national family and caregiving expert, begins the second day of the Summit with a presentation, “Choosing to Care,” focusing on the intersection of mental health and caregiving and real-world solutions for journalists to vet and turn into impactful stories.

The conference will offer panel discussions, skills development workshops and networking opportunities as well as the opportunity to hear from authorities on caregiving and mental health.
