I've never thought that so many people think that mental health issues mean being psychopaths I wish people would think for a moment

I would love for him to react to "That's Okay That's Love" - it's a Korean drama show and trust me, normally I'm not at all into Korean dramas, but this one's good. Gives a very soft hearted representation of mental illness. I enjoyed it loads!

I just wanna ask, why western people have so many mental illness?
Mikayla Healey (3 hours ago)
I wonder if part of why Bradley's character escalates so quickly is because he does have some sort of trauma? He has a trigger song, and has extreme reactions to things that remind him of the event.

You should have brought on Eric Cartman from South Park when bringing on people with antisocial personality disorder. It's funny, though his character is worked out much more than the others and it shows very clear how easy it is for him to lie, manipulate and use other people for his own profits, because he continuously twists his sense of reality for his own benefits. Also how he really doesn't understand how it feels like to feel when doing something for someone else's benefits instead of your own.

I think it's a shame, that most movies about mental illness, are exaggerating every aspect of the disorder. It is of course to make them stand out on screen, but it always shows the worst case, which makes people believe that mental illness is extremely chaotic and horrible all the time, which it is for some, but a lot of people learn to live with their disorders, and if movies showed that more, I think maybe people who are not sick, would have a better understanding, and not be so scared of us.

When I watch Sherlock that Version. I thought he seemed more autistic than anything so guess I was pretty spot on.
Weave Snatched (6 hours ago)
After Shane Dawson, why does everyone feel the need to talk about mental illnesses? It's as if it wasn't even a thing before
Weave Snatched (4 hours ago)
+Salma Abdullah I've been studying psychology for more than a year now, I've never seen BuzzFeed or bigger channels making videos about psychology. Isn't it obvious now that Shane has triggered this subject and it's getting millions of views, other big YouTubers will gain viewers and money as it's hot nowadays?
Salma Abdullah (4 hours ago)
Just because your realising it or hearing it more doesnt mean people werent talking about it as much, this is acc goo because it bring awareness

They should make a part two with stuff like depression, eating disorders, ocd, agoraphobia. Stuff like that great video tho

I really didn’t like Silver Linings Playbook, mostly because of how accurately it portrayed bipolar disorder and reminded me of my mom who refuses to seek help or acknowledge there is a problem. Ugh just rewatching that clip reminded me of living with her and made my skin crawl.

"Sherlock definitely has a relationship with Watson. " Johnlock shippers knew that before they saw the video😂

This Dr is too good person, I feel like more ppl are like "movie psychopaths" 🤔
Dragon maid (8 hours ago)
Most violence I imagine from mental illness is due to people being frightened and feeling unsafe and trying to defend themselves. Perhaps in a confused state.
Fátima Gómez (8 hours ago)
I thought that sherlock said this to be funny and creepy but he is more like having asperger syndrom

Joanne August (9 hours ago)
They should do that with Criminal Minds - I've always wondered if that show was realistic.
Rosalina Han (9 hours ago)
I loved this video. A lot of times mental illness can be portrayed wrong in media, especially ASPD, but all of them are twisted and turned to make the movie more interesting. Which I get, but not everyone will leave that movie and research afterwards and the next time they hear about the mental illness they’ll the think of the sensationalized or over the top character from that movie. It’s really nice to see a video like this from a professional who explains it with enthusiasm and a clear voice. Really well done.

I honestly would love to see him brought back for other conversations. It is really important to dissect representation of mental health in pop culture because misconceptions need to be known so as to not further stigmatize and perpetuate false ideas.

Love this video! I have Asperger's (very proud of it too!) so it's really cool to see people becoming more understanding and interested about it. That way we can all be equal and put an end to bullying!

In the stories of Sherlock, it does mention of him having aspergers syndrome

Amanda Lee Garza (12 hours ago)
Love the video but my only thing is that when he says it’s not realistic to be a murderer is just what bothers me cz you can look at a lot of homicide situations, mass murders, all that and it kinda is a situation where the person had a mental illness and most times it doesn’t get accounted for cz it’s still a major crime so regular punishment is at hand. Then there’s times where NO punishment is given but more of psychiatric help gets involved because of their illness. But yes a lot of movies do exaggerate and kinda do a bad job of showing realistic sides of things but then again their movies.. Great video I love these types of videos because I suffer with mental illness and it’s pretty interesting what others have to say on certain illnesses especially a view from a profesional.

Serai3 (12 hours ago)
Oh my god, it's so frustrating when someone duns a movie because a character is not enough this or too much that. Dude, it's ONE CHARACTER. A single character cannot represent an entire range of behavior. It's just one person. Are there people like Raymond? As I understand it, there are. The movie never claims that every autistic person is like Raymond - only that _Raymond_ is like Raymond. ARGH

Yes! I was watching Sherlock and when he said that line I was like “No! The guys on the spectrum!” I pulled out my dsm to verify his sx (still in school for my MFT). Yeah I noticed I’ve been dx characters on TV these days.

9:00 Oh, so that's the difference? I'd once been told the difference was a psychopath is born with the condition while a sociopath acquires it. Guess I was misinformed.

tom cruise's rain man performance is spectacular. he plays it so real by being thrown off by his brother that it's what allows Hoffman to work off of so brilliantly.
Bren Has Cookies (14 hours ago)
On the Sherlock note, how Sherlock seemed to be less impulsive, I think as the show has progressed we see he is indeed impulsive and idk if that was purposeful in the sociopath sense or for the plot or the character arc but the last season we got he was very impulsive and emotional.

The Silver Linings Playbook segment was pretty accurate. I was diagnosed with Bipolar 1 when I was a teenager and diagnosed again a few years ago. I’ve never watched this movie, but now I really want to.
Sofie Sørensen (14 hours ago)
I'd say split the guy did the part really well it was almost creepy. Despite the fact that it isn't possible with the Interaction, but the movie is about him finding away to open up his mind, it's quite complicated to explain. :) But yes there is good and bad movies with mental illness 😊.
The Dudess (14 hours ago)
I hope they didn't show too much of Split for him and spoiled it
