"Gaslight", "Narcissist" & "Sociopath": How Influencers Are Weaponising Clinical Terms For Clicks
Play • 56 min

In this week's episode, we look at how influencers are becoming increasingly comfortable with placing psychiatric labels on each other like "gaslighter", "narcissistic" and "sociopath" to drum up drama and win fights. We look at how these labels have transcended the field of psychiatry into internet culture and mainstream vocabulary while examining the implications of this shift on the stigmatisation of mental health. Finally, we consider why influencers are so quick to use these "buzzwords" despite the backlash and share some solutions to this rising issue.
