How has mental health representation in comics evolved over the past 50 years since the very first Comic-Con? Does mental health represent the next wave of diversity in comics, or is that just "crazy" talk? Russ Burlingame (ComicBook.com), Corrina Lawson (GeekDad.com), and others join forensic psychiatrists Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D. and Praveen Kambam, M.D. (Broadcast Thought) to discuss the state of mental health media representation and how a mental health/pop culture partnership can be a "win-win" for both the entertainment industry and people with mental illnesses. Moderated by attorney Jeff Trexler (The Beat, The Comics Journal).
