A Beautiful Mind


For this weblog entry, I’d like to focus on a clip from a movie and see your reactions to it. The movies and tv shows we watch play a huge role in how we view mental illness and mental health, so it is important to analyze what we are watching to see if it is accurate or generalizing mental illness and creating stigma. This video clip is from the popular movie, A Beautiful Mind. The main character has schizophrenia and this scene depicts his mental illness.

What are some things that you would think of schizophrenia and those diagnosed with it after watching this clip?

  1. This is one of my most favorite movies of all time. However, there are some scenes that depict having schizophrenia as being something that cannot be lived with. Schizophrenia can be lived with if the person is on the right medications etc.
