Mental and Physical Disorders - Are they really any different?

We talked a great deal this week about mental illness and mental disorders to help us understand how they are perceived in our world and how they are portrayed on TV and in movies.

We will watch three clips of real life and fictional individuals in order to think about how people with illnesses and disorders are treated, what they struggle with, and how they lead fulfilling happy lives despite these mental and physical challenges.

As you watch, take notes on the parking lot hand out provided to you. What do you observe in each clip and in which ways are these individuals similar or different.
