Antonia Markiewitz

Antonia Markiewitz is a predoctoral researcher at LMU Munich and PhD candidate in communication science. Her research focuses on health communication and journalism research and their interaction. Antonia is currently working on a DFG-funded project on how the media–precisely journalists–can contribute to suicide prevention.

Antonia’s efforts lie in promoting (the value of) mental health both in society and regarding its depiction in the media.
