Last time we shared some movies about the same this time we want to share some web series that handled issues of mental health sensitively.
We’re all struggling with demons of our own and while some of us go to therapy and put in the inner work, mental health is still quite a taboo in a society such as ours. This is why it becomes so important to spread awareness about mental health and what it entails. A lot of movies touched upon mental health and the role it plays in our daily lives and rose conversations about it. And as much exposure as that gave to mental health, the web series explored the issue rather well, given the advantage of building a narrative and portraying its depth over numerous episodes.
This list of series not only touches on the theme of mental health but also on the surrounding ones. Some of them took the more serious route, while the others chose the lighter option – comedy while telling their narratives. From heavy topics of suicide, depression, bipolar disorders to the grief of losing someone, these movies will strike the right chord with you.
