Novel Feelings: A Mental Health Book Club

Novel Tropes 2: Violence and mental health issues

April 25, 2021

Our second entry in Novel Tropes, our mini-series, focuses on the 'people with mental health issues are violent' trope. Elise puts on her researcher hat and discuss the stats about this relationship in real life. We also chat with Anna Ross, a PhD candidate whose research focuses on reducing stigma towards severe mental illness through improved media reporting. Tune in for our recommendations on how writers can do better. Hint: we want to see less of this trope in general, tbh.
