British teens say that seeing positive depictions of mental health in movies and TV shows breaks the stigma—and prompts them to ask for help. A survey from the British Board of Film Classification and YouGov has found that 68% of teens say positive portrayals of mental health make the topic less taboo, while 48% say a scene in a movie or TV show has actually prompted them to talk to their friends or family about mental health. We’ve been tracking young consumers’ focus on mental health for some time and watched as they’ve fueled trends like meditation apps and mindfulness while bringing conversations about mental wellness to new platforms. In fact, entertainment’s involvement in mental health has grown steadily with shows tackling tougher themes and topics—and streaming is becoming a major way Gen Z and Millennials have maintained their mental health through COVID. Now, nearly eight out of 10 U.K. 13-18-year-olds surveyed say the media industry has an important role to play in showing mental health issues responsibly. (Variety)
