psychology-mental-health-and-mental-illness-in-popular-culture
Welcome to the newest and hopefully one of the most stimulating and provocative Areas of the Popular Culture Association. Throughout recorded history, those regarded as mentally ill have frightened, fascinated and challenged us to look deep within the human experience for answers to the most fundamental of questions about ourselves and each other.

The study of Psychology which is rooted in Philosophy has offered many fascinating explanations for our behavior, both normal and deviant. However, it has only been within the recent past that Psychology and Popular Culture Studies have come together in attempts to answer some of these age-old questions.
