The recent refugee crisis in Europe took an unexpected toll on journalists covering it, exposing individuals and institutions to events and experiences that many found difficult to prepare for and process. That’s according to a new report carried out by the International News Safety Institute and published by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, the first study into the link between the media and moral injury.

Join report author Hannah Storm in conversation with co-author Professor Anthony Feinstein and award-winning journalists Yannis Behrakis and Will Vassilopoulos to discuss what individuals and institutions can do to better prepare themselves for and navigate this new terrain in mental health for the media.
