Barbara Demming Lurie, a Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude honors grad of OSU, continued her graduate studies in clinical psychology at University of Wisconsin. She spent the next two decades heading a Bureau for the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health on weekdays and weekends penning a restaurant review column for a daily newspaper. After a stint as Director of Programs and Research for the Entertainment Industries Council, Inc., she was asked to head the Mental Health Media Partnership, a nonprofit organization sponsored by USC and the University of Pennsylvania to work with the entertainment industry promoting understanding of mental health issues. In addition to her position with IBHP, she works with Vanguard Communications and SAMHSA on the annual Voice Awards to recognize the contributions of the entertainment industry to mental health understanding.

"Media portrayals are moving away from the twitchy killer to characters more troubled and frightened than troubling and frightening," said Barbara Lurie, associate director of programs for the Entertainment Industries Council in Los Angeles. She screened clips from television dramas that offer sympathetic portrayals of mentally ill people or even turn the violent stereotype on its head: a homeless, mentally ill person is first suspected of murder, but then turns out to be a hero who leads police to the real killer. Lurie said campaigns to change the media can work if they are constructive but not confrontational. They should also be coordinated, she said, citing a show featuring a mental patient who went off his medication and committed murder.
