The Injustice of the Horror Genre and its Portrayal of Mentally Ill

Written by Stella Ducklow on .

I like horror movies, and the horror genre LOVES me.

Why else would I appear in so many of their films? Single White Female, Fatal Attraction, Chloe, The Roommate, and several episodes of Criminal Minds, which is a highly informative show that regularly features a mentally ill serial killer. My personal favorite is the one starring a bipolar cannibal whose killing/flesh eating spree is triggered by not receiving enough attention from his emotionally absent mother, BUT I digress.

Why Mental Health in the Workplace Matters

Written by Dr. Ian Dawe on .

Given that most people who work spend most of their waking hours at work, understanding the human costs of workplace mental illness is essential.  This understanding helps employers develop an action plan for improving both the bottom line and employee well-being.

Best practices support early intervention. The vision for a psychologically healthy and safe workplace is one that promotes workers’ psychological well-being and allows no harm to worker mental health in negligent, reckless or intentional ways.
