How Does the Media Impact Us?

Updated: Jun 21, 2022



Whether TV "programming" is actually hurting or helping our mental health, MTV's Entertainment Group says now it is a priority for them to reflect on more intentional ways of representing mental health in their programming.


In a recent episode of the podcast Harvard Business Review's Anxious Achiever, Morra Aaron-Mele (a great podcast for media nerds, by the way!) interviewed MTV's CEO.


He said 1 out of every 2 college students, MTV's primary audience, now reports that they have mental health issues. So the media group is being pressured to put more emphasis on how they address mental illness on the channel.


The question remains, does media support or hurt our mental health? When we see reality stars having mental breakdowns, does it throw us into a frenzy or does it reflect on our own behavior?

How can we make media supportive of our mental health wellness?
