PSY 181 Week 4 Discussion: Discussion Board 3

Initial post:

Everyone has felt or acted “crazy” during brief periods of stress or high emotion. People with psychological disorders may have problems that are more severe or long-lasting than most of us experience. Otherwise, those that suffer from a psychological disorder are not much different than us.

When it comes to the discussion around psychological disorders, it has become apparent that our culture stigmatizes (rejects and disgraces) those who suffer from psychological disorders.

  • Select a movie, television dramas, or social media post. How are the mentally ill stigmatized in that movie, tv show, or social media post? For this, make sure to include a description or the movie of show, video clip, or picture to demonstrate how mental illness is depicted in your selected media portrayal.
  • Can you think of any accurate portrayals of mental illness in the media? If not, why do you feel the mentally ill are stigmatized in such a manner?
  • How do you think such portrayals affect attitudes, perceptions, and understanding about mental disorders?

*Remember to use in-text, and full reference citations in APA format for all content that you bring in from the readings. Your textbook should be your PRIMARY source of information, not an internet search. Feel free to express personal feelings/views/opinions, but also remember to use an academic voice when writing your post and responses. *

Discussion Content

Discussions play an integral role in monitoring your course participation throughout the term. You should check back to the weekly discussions multiple times throughout the week to engage in the discussion with your professor and peers. Participation is only counted during the week in which this discussion is assigned. Be sure to appropriately cite any sources you use to support your responses with standard APA citations. Answer the prompt question(s) thoroughly, using at least 150-200 words, and respond to as many of your peers as possible. Note that responses to 2 of your peers are required for full credit. Be sure to answer any additional questions asked by your professor in the discussion threads. Your initial post is due by Day 3 of the current week, and follow up posts to your peers are due on Day 7!
