The Mind Media Awards are an annual event held towards the end of each year, celebrating the best portrayals of mental health in the media over the past 12 months.
This year's 'Soaps' category features EastEnders for Ian Beale's mental health crisis, Emmerdale for Zak Dingle's breakdown and Pobol y Cwm for the struggle faced by Macs White after he was raped.
Waterloo Road, meanwhile, has been recognised in the 'Drama' category for the storyline which saw Josh Stevenson stop taking the medication he needs to manage his schizophrenia, causing him to experience episodes of psychosis.
The BBC One programme is nominated in the category alongside This is England '88, Top Boy, Homeland and Appropriate Adult.
The 2012 Mind Media Awards will take place at the BFI on London's South Bank on November 19.
Last year's ceremony saw Casualty recognised on the night for Ruth Winters's bipolar disorder storyline.
