This guy is kind of an arrogant know it all. The way he says something is a bad representation is just completely un true. Theres so many different people all with a different extent of their mental illness and just cause certain things the actors did doesnt apply to what hes experienced with mental illnesses doesnt mean it's a bad representation.

I have watched almost all of these. Except for the good palve and the last movie I don't remember the name of. Sherlock is my favorite show EVER, the silver lining was beautiful imo and I love how Iron Man 3 concentrated so much on Stark's emotions and anxiety. Just kinda disappointed there is no Shameless here. You can literally find every mental illness on that show (especially Ian Gallagher, he has bipolar disorder)

Trustin Dean (28 days ago)
I feel like Iron Man didn't quite get past his PTSD and more just learned how to deal with it and prevent random breakdowns, bc hes still visibly anxious anytime someone gets hurt as a result of his inaction which goes back to how he is entirely motivated by the invasion force he saw in space mixed with Scarlet Witch's vision she gave him
Christopher Haynes (28 days ago)
Thank you for pointing out people with mental illness are much more likely to be victims of violence than the perpetuators of it.

D .C (1 month ago)
As he spoke about antisocial personal disorders, it strongly reminded me of an ex. The ex faked a bond for me since they were in need of a caretaker. Well I shouldn't say faked since my ex was reliant upon care. I myself have mental illness. I am curious on Dr. Mattu's take about how movies represent BPD.

What's the distinction between Dissociative Identity Disorder and Multiple Personality Disorder?
Julia Hennessy (1 month ago)
They're the same thing. DID became the new term for it instead though some refer to it still as MPD.
NotDeadJustYet (1 month ago)
I really wish he'd commented on the fact that people with DID having an evil alter is really rare, if even existing at all. that's the part of Split that hurts most people with DID.
