GateHouse Media would like to extend a congratulations to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, which was recently awarded the National Press Foundation’s first Carolyn C. Mattingly Award for Mental Health Reporting for its joint investigation with the Tampa Bay Times of Florida’s mental health hospitals.
The five-part “Insane. Invisible. In Danger” series was reported by the Herald-Tribune’s Michael Braga and the Tampa Bay Times’ Leonora LaPeter Anton and Anthony Cormier, and focused on conditions at Florida’s institutions for the mentally ill after $100 million in budget cuts.
The judges noted the collaboration between the two competing Florida papers and said the piece was “revealing, thorough, comprehensive and deep. Every element was compelling, from surveillance videos, graphics, data, strong multimedia and top-drawing writing. The project was extraordinarily strong from start to finish.”
“Insane. Invisible. In Danger” also was a finalist in the Investigative Reporters and Editors’ recent competition.
