Abstract

Discusses the representation of mental distress and mental health from a structuralist critical position as well as the association of mental distress with media constructions of patriarchal gender roles. Positively reviews Harper's book 'Madness, Power and the Media' in terms of its thorough interrogation of mental distress discourses in contemporary media.
