Anxiety and depression aren't the *only* mental health issues people deal with!

Movies and TV shows are always fun to watch because they help us escape the stressful world we live in.

The CW

But sometimes we notice a whole lot of problematic moments, especially when it comes to mental health.

Facebook / Red Table Talk

Maybe this scene from The First Wives Club made you roll your eyes because patients aren't always lying down on couches during therapy sessions.

Paramount Pictures

Or perhaps as much as you love BoJack Horseman, it made you frustrated as hell because they acted like anxiety and depression were the *only* mental health issues people deal with.


Or maybe you were pissed when you saw a show or movie primarily portray a white woman's mental health experience, when sooooo many women of color go through the same thing IRL.

FX / Columbia Pictures

The misrepresentations go on and on, so it's time for *you* to tell us what TV shows and movies always get wrong about mental health (and why), and you could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post!
