MTV Admits That its Portrayals of Mental Health can be Damaging



Shocking news: reality shows' depictions of mental illness are not always great. Maybe even more shocking news: the president of MTV says that ViacomCBS is going to try to roll back the negative depictions of mental illness.

In the future, the conglomerate, which owns MTV, VH1, Paramount+, and Comedy Central, will try to show a "fuller context" of mental health "instead of simply exploiting it.”

Predictably, some people are whining about political correctness and others are worried that future TV shows will be less entertaining.

can reality shows be entertaining yet be respectful of mental illness?

Yes
42(23.1%)
Maybe
39(21.4%)
No
69(37.9%)
Probably but I hope there will still be some mess.
32(17.6%)
