Split - mental health in film

Wednesday, 15 March 2017 - 5:00pm to 5:30pm

This week on Brainwaves, the team discusses the newly released film "Split". The movie has come under criticism for its negative portrayal of Dissociative Identity Disorder and mental health in general. We discuss some of the themes in the movie and the implications of stigma in the film industry.

This podcast does contain spoilers for the movie, and also mentions some heavily distressing issues in the film. If any of the topics raised are troubling for you, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Wellways' Helpline on 1300 111 500.
