Use of the word schizophrenia in Portuguese newspapers()

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest the media has an active role promoting stigma, as well as passively broadcasting and thus passing on prejudices.

It really depends on the newspaper, there’s one specifically that only does more harm than good in all subject it touches, others somewhat bad, but mostly they’re good.

Edit: I now see the dates they studied, it makes sense.

I read some news last week and it said that a violent crime could be commited by a schizophrenic (a man killed his wife, son, dad and mom). They had no proof that the crime was commited by a schizophrenic. They just mentioned it because a therapist thought it would be case. It made me mad.
