Considering how prevalent mental illness is, why do so few bloggers talk about it?

The aim of this blog is to write about my experience with mental illness, developments in my life as well as issues in the field of mental health all the while keeping a feminist framework.

I hope you can take something from this blog, whatever that may be.

Shows with Mentally Ill characters: the bad

Criminal Minds:
While I enjoy this show (my mom and I use to watch 'Profiler' when I was like 7 and thats what I wanted to be, until I found out I would have to take lots of science classes!) it gives horrible portrayals of the mentally ill! the first season was especially bad because every 'bad guy' had some sort of disorder.
This show gets thumbs down for encouraging the stereotype that those people with mental disorders are violent.
