2015 Changed The Way We Address Mental Illness On TV

Dr. Paul Puri, a psychiatrist and TV writer, also joined the conversation explaining how mental health is getting more respect on TV. He explained:

“We’ve really seen the movement from peripheral, secondary or supporting characters to the primary characters and the leads displaying not just more subtitles to it but really the experience of what it’s like to be going through different forms of mental illness — or what the writers think mental illness is or want to represent about it.”
