Mental health: Movies that sensitively handled this social issue

Mental health is a priority for everyone right now, so we wanted to share some movies that cover this social issue sensitively.

We all have our own demons that haunt us to this very day but regardless of what people tell you, mental health is not a condition. We are glad that films have opened up the conversation around the social issue. From normalizing having mental health concerns to taking therapy, films have taught us to understand the situation with the utmost sensitivity.

These films not only handle the issue sensitively but are also relatable and helpful. This list of films discusses a range of mental health concerns from high-functioning schizophrenia to the simpler struggles in life. These movies are touched upon in a sensitive, careful and respectful manner. Also, these films will leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling and answers to questions nobody has been able to answer for you.
