Does someone have a mental illness?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more where someone has a mental illness.
Sometimes a character suffering from an explicit mental illness can trigger people who have previously experiences or are experiencing, causing them to relapse or worsen their mental health. For example, there are many shows in which characters deal very explicitly with depression, which might cause someone who has suffered from depression in the past to relapse.

So nothing major. No one really has a diagnosis or anything but SPOILER there are thought of death and there's a little television spot where they show like a depressed barbie doll with crying and stuff and some illnesses are mentioned but nothing major.

Mental illness is a major significant theme, and all four girls have various symptoms. Sayori explicitly has depression. Yuri is anxiety-prone, has a self-harm habit, and becomes obsessed with the protagonist in Act 2. Natsuki is from an abusive household, and it's implied her tsundere personality is partly trauma responses. Monika is dealing with an existential crisis and can bring up the mental health of the player, the other girls, and herself in Act 3.
