Depictions of Mental Illness in Film

In this episode, Pasha Ripley, Sara Barnaik, and Sasha San Andres join Erin to discuss depictions of mental illness in film. We delve into harmful tropes, some positive portrayals, our own personal mental health journeys, and more.
Please note: This is an intensely personal and deep conversation. It could be extremely triggering for some since we do touch on different mental illnesses, suicide, self-harm, sexual abuse, PTSD, and anything you can possibly think of associated with mental illness. Please be careful.
