From "psychopathic" villains to asylums for the "criminally insane," mental health issues permeate television, film, and comics. But just how realistic are these depictions? What impact do these presentations have on audiences? Psychologist Andrea Letamendi (The Arkham Sessions) and writers Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost; The Middleman), Brenden Fletcher (Batgirl, Black Canary), Jody Houser (IDW's Orphan Black; Avengers: No More Bullying), Mairghread Scott (Windblade, Swords of Sorrow), and Zack Stentz (ACME, X-Men: First Class) discuss the importance of accuracy, inclusion, and the promotion of more psychologically dynamic characters in fiction. Moderated by Brian Ward (Shout! Factory).
