Audience's Cognitive and Psychological Analysis of Publicly Expressing Mental Illness

Chengyun Fu

Abstract—The incidence of mental illness is increasing year by year, and appears on public platforms to express the status of the disease group. Some scholars have studied the public's cognition and attitude about mental illness. On the basis of these articles, the purpose is to study the public's cognition and emotional attitude towards public expression of mental illness. This article uses text analysis to extract the most popular mental illness videos on the online platform” bilibili”, and randomly selects 1,000 comments for analysis. The results show that about 86.5% of users agree with the public expression of mental illness, and 7% of users do not agree, 6.5% of users are suspicious of symptoms and want accurate information. Through the analysis of the results, the majority of the public has a positive and positive attitude towards the patients who openly express mental illness, but the current situation of the public expression is polarized by users, with one highly identifying with and deifying the disease, while the other strongly disidentifying and contaminating the disease.

Index Terms—Cognition, mental illness, attitude.
