To counter stigma it is important to understand how these videos portray mental illness and how often Nigerians are exposed to such scenes. This information can help to determine whether these videos contribute significantly to perpetrating negative views of mental illness and to what extent this medium could be used for promoting mental health literacy. In an effort to answer these questions, community dwellers participating in a 2009 public health campaign in Ibadan, Nigeria, were asked via in-person interviews how often they see scenes depicting “madness” in Nigerian films and about their views of the accuracy of such depictions. In addition, a sample of current Nigerian home videos from three randomly selected video rental shops in three neighborhoods in Ibadan were rented for viewing and content analysis. All Yoruba films on display were sampled, yielding a total of 103.
