Although TV shows and movies have been doing a better job over the past few years in the accuracy of their depiction of mental health conditions
not all of them hit the mark. This remains a concern because it's dangerous for fictional stories to misrepresent the realities of mental health. Negative portrayals can contribute to the stigma surrounding mental illness, making those who need it less likely to seek help.
In many instances, TV shows and movies do not present mental conditions in a positive, or even sympathetic, light. In fact, characters with mental illness were often depicted as peculiar and dangerous. It is convenient to say the villain commits crimes because he or she is "crazy" without going into a nuanced explanation of mental health at all. In some other instances, mental health problems are glorified which could have a profound influence on people.
