If you have a mental illness, then it can be frustrating to see a TV show or movie missing the mark in its portrayal of said illness.

It's not uncommon for mental illnesses to be stereotyped for dramatic effect, but having a mental illness does not make you a violent person, or someone who's perpetually irrational, or someone who can't keep their life together, etc.

But then sometimes you see a character with your mental illness, and think, "Wow. That's exactly how I feel."

If you said that after watching a TV show or movie this year (2017!), then we want to hear about it.


So tell us: Which TV or movie plot lines in 2017 got mental health right?

And don't just tell us which TV show or movie it was — we'd love to hear why you thought it portrayed mental illness so accurately, too. Also, if you know of the specific time or episode, let us know! Share your thoughts in the dropbox below.
