Introduction
Public stigma consists of a set of negative attitudes and beliefs that make people to reject, avoid, discriminate and fear people with mental illness. This kind of stigma is related to lack of knowledge in metal health and illness. Public stigma also creates reduced autonomy, self-efficacy, discrimination and segregation. For an example, people with mental illness are prone to experience employment and housing discrimination or homelessness compared to people without any mental health issue. Moreover, rigid beliefs about the competency of people with mental issues disrupt their financial state, deprive them from various opportunities and may lead to abusive treatment and less independence in society.
The Impact of Media on Public Perceptions regarding Mental Illness
For the most part, mass media influences our ideas and ways in which we perceive those around us (Roy et al., 2020). For the people suffering from mental health issues, the implications of the negative and inaccurate representation of mental illness are significant. Wrong information in the media regarding mental health issues, even though the representation is positive, results in misinterpretation that may have considerable and real consequences. For an example, improper representation of schizophrenia (often confused in the mass media with split personality) can result in conflict, confusion, false beliefs and a delay in receiving medical treatment. Unlike physical health issues, many mental issues are associated with the social stigma. Dealing with this shame can be very debilitating. It can interfere with daily living of an individual whether it is self-directed or acquired from the society. It is a common notion that prejudice and fear will always influence negatively and make the society judgmental towards the mentally ill (Yadav, 2020).
There is an invisible barrier separating the mentally ill from the so-called normal society. The challenged ones are pushed towards the verge of breakdown. Negative and misinterpreted depictions can prolong what the common mass thinks about the mentally challenged individuals. This eternal intolerance and oppression of the public affect the mentally ill negatively. The mental fabric of the society is embedded with negative impressions and hence cannot alter the conscience and portray sensationalism that can allow them to differentiate the disable from violence (Logan, 2018). It is a common believe that the mentally ill are dangerous and is capable of causing harm for the other people. This thought separates the ill from the so-called normal people. Browsing through one such video that show the adversaries of a mentally sick person can make people hide in their shelters in fear of being harmed.
Summary of the movie, ‘A Beautiful Mind’
The movie revolves around John Nash, the protagonist of the story. He arrives at the Princeton University as a co-recipient in 1947, along with Martin Hansen, who received a scholarship for mathematics from Carnegie. The plot gradually reveals him and his fellow graduates of math and science, Ainsley, Sol and Bender along with his roommate Charles Harmen, from the literature department sitting in the bar. They are talking about...
