Psychos, cuckoo's nests and silver linings: madness in the movies
McGowan, J. 2015. Psychos, cuckoo's nests and silver linings: madness in the movies.
How mental illness is portrayed in art, literature and on TV can have a positive or negative effect on how the public perceives mental ill health. Representations of people with mental health problems can range from the mad psychotic criminal to people within their daily lives dealing with depression, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. This panel discussion explores how such presentations of mental illness can affect public understanding of mental ill health with insights from research and personal experiences.
