Mental health images on the Internet: A Facebook and digital media content analysis in Spanish

Resumen

Este trabajo analiza la imagen de la salud mental difundida a través de medios digitales y redes sociales, en español, tras la aprobación de la resolución 32/18 del Consejo de Derechos Humanos, sobre salud mental y derechos humanos Para ello, se realizó un análisis estandarizado del contenido de una muestra de 370 noticias publicadas durante un período de seis meses, entre agosto de 2016 y enero de 2017, para determinar si el tratamiento periodístico de las noticias era positivo, negativo, equidistante o institucional. Asimismo, se estudiaron 352 páginas de Facebook, con los mismos criterios de análisis. Entre los resultados, destaca que sólo el 53% (n = 196) de los artículos abordaron directamente la salud mental. De ellos, el 40% (n = 79) lo trató positivamente, mientras que el 26% (n = 50), negativamente. Además, un alto porcentaje de artículos (18%, n=35) trataba la salud mental metafóricamente, lo que contribuye tambiéna la estigmatización de las enfermedades mentales. El análisis de las páginas de Facebook mostró una baja proporción del tratamiento positivo de la salud mental (5%, n = 18), y en el 61% de la muestra estudiada (n = 215) el contenido no tenía nada que ver con la salud mental.
