Episode 10 STIGMA - media & modern culture

this is bipolar

Health & Fitness

In this episode, mental health advocates Shaley Hoogendoorn and Julie Kraft discuss how stigma is affected by media & modern culture. Do movies and tv shows portray mental illness in an accurate light? Do characters give a realistic glimpse? And what happens if and when they don’t? This episode also explores what responsibility, if any, the media has when reporting about 'people in the public eye' & their mental health struggles. Listen in as Shaley and Julie weigh in on specific shows, interviews, and even the paparazzi. It is their greatest hope that this episode brings awareness to the powerful impact the entertainment world has on our perceptions of mental health!
