Mental Health in Journalism with Sachi Cunningham (’05) in conversation with MJ Johnson ’23 & Grace Galletti ’23

Mental health is not something that is often addressed in the field of journalism. Come break the stigma in a conversation with Sachi Cunningham (’05), a documentary filmmaker, about how journalism should adapt to accommodate mental health for all, the pressures specific to graduate school and the rise of mental health issues from Covid.

Sachi Cunningham (she/her) is a filmmaker, water surf photographer, and Associate Professor of Multimedia Journalism at San Francisco State University. Her award winning work has taken her from the deserts of Iraq to the shores of the Amazon for outlets including PBS Frontline, The NY Times, LA Times and top surf magazines. She has a B.A. from Brown University and an M.J. from Berkeley Journalism. A mental health advocate, cancer survivor and mother, Cunningham lives with her family on Ohlone Territory also known as San Francisco, CA.

This event is hosted by UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism and the Journalist Association for Mental Health.
