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.

The movie opens with a woman with bipolar disorder engaging in an act of murder-suicide, with her leaving a worrying message to her surviving sister beforehand. Dani, the sister, herself has a history of anxiety and dissociation and is still recovering from the loss of her family.

this movie was pretty triggering if you have the flavor of mental illness where you’re sometimes not sure of reality

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.

Most of the crew likely have some forms of PTSD and people headcannon other stuff but it isn’t explicitly said likely because of the time period it’s set in.

DID, a trauma-based disorder, is a major theme throughout. Mima's character in the TV drama is said to have the disorder, and the movie hints at the possibility that Mima might have the disorder herself. The movie's plot twist is that Rumi, Mima's manager, has episodes where she believes she's Mima, implicitly out of dissociation. While the portrayal of the disorder is reasonably accurate (caused by trauma, large amounts of memory loss, missing time, identity confusion, etc.), it does also fall into some potentially questionable tropes.
