write an essay (2,500-3,000w) about the following topic:
Analyse the discourse around mental health. Are mental disorders still taboo? How is this topic treated in the media?
You can either use Australia or another country as a case study and research how international communication impacts developments in this country, or you can compare discourses about mental health in two different countries.
In either case, discuss how political and cultural changes impact public opinion. Identify cultural influences that may change attitudes towards mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
