Media, Mental Health and Public Education on how to be "Normal"

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In this paper, we present a feminist, intersectional analysis of findings from a pilot project on films and television programming about ‘mental illness’ that were used for public and/or professional education in Canada between 1940 and 1969. The project impetus was the extensive research that demonstrates the significance of media in framing social issues and problems in liberal states and especially the increasing power of visual media in this regard during the 20th century. While media impact is not homogeneous, analyzing representations of topics such as madness is important given that media are the sole source of information on these issues for many people.
