Leader Community Newspapers is a Walkley finalist

Diamond Valley Leader photojournalist Andy Drewitt's feature "A trail of lost souls" is the story of Melbourne genealogist Kath Ensor and her research into the records of mental institutions. Her work into the effects of institutionalisation as a PhD student at Monash University in Clayton, Ms Ensor found that the lost lives were a reality of the modern-day mental health system. Her focus was on two men, Frank and Norman and their battles with schizophrenia. The article may be viewed on the Newsbank database via the library's Online Library.
