The European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2012 ECNP Media Award is the Science Media Centre, London. The ECNP Media Award recognises outstanding contributions to destigmatising disorders of the brain. Awarded in 2012 for the first time, it will be presented annually, and is accompanied by a prize of 5,000.

Preference is given to work that highlights the connection with scientific research and helps to make the science of disorders of the brain accessible to a wide audience.

ECNP President Joseph Zohar said, "I am delighted that the Science Media Centre is the winner.
