Abstract:

This paper will report the results of two experiments investigating the online processing of emotional messages containing characters with mental illness. The first experiment asks how much personal experience with persons with metnal illness influences the processing of televised messages about mental illness. Cognitive and physiological responses while viewing of negative and positive portrayals of mental illness are measured. Participants who vary in terms of the amount of positive or negative contact they have in their daily lives with persons with mental illness were recruited from a county wide random survey. The second experiment assesses the short and medium term effects of viewing negative or positive portrayals of people with mental illness on stigmatizing attitudes.
