Psychological Media Consulting

Mental health has a long history of being stigmatized, which unfortunately increases the likelihood that people do not seek out services. With television and film being one of the major vessels from which people receive information, it is at the forefront of influencing the de-stigmatization of mental health. As such, it is so important that what is seen are accurate and informed depictions of the variety of experiences that people coping with mental health issues face.
