Media portrayal of mental illness a negative influence on adolescents?

Question by Autumn: Media portrayal of mental illness a negative influence on adolescents?
I am doing a research on how movies and television portrayals of mental illness have a negative influence on adolescents.

I’m looking for movies to use as an example. Anything that has to do with mental illness (broad topic) and how it might affect adolescent audiences in a negative way.

I just need titles and suggestions. Thanks!
