Newstalk's Lunchtime Live has won the 'Voice Media' Award at the 2019 Headline Mental Health Media Awards.

The award recognises the coverage the show has given to those with self-experience of a mental health difficulty, and the role it has played in widening the understanding of mental ill health.

Established over a decade ago, the awards recognise excellence in media coverage of mental health issues.

They reflect the challenges, lived experience and realities of people living with mental ill health.

The focus is on stories, topics or issues in, about or related to mental ill health.

Presenter Dr Ciara Kelly said she was "very proud" of the Lunchtime Live team.

The 'Voice Media' category covers broadcasters and publishers who have "demonstrated excellence in the quality and quantity of coverage given to people with self-experience of mental ill health".

Newstalk Breakfast's Susan Keogh and Alan Quinlan were also nominated for awards.

Special categories were also added to recognise the decision-makers behind the scenes, who facilitate and encourage "impactful, inclusive and informed stories."

The ceremony took place at the Morrison Hotel in Dublin on Wednesday.

Almost 20% of the Irish population were recorded as having a mental health disorder in 2016.
