I don't wanna say it's accurate but i would say perks of being a wallflower is amazing. I love it because i could relate to it a lot from suffering from mental problems myself.

The garden of words (animated film). The main storyline is a bit unusual, however I thought it was an interesting insight on seclusion and depression

Currently watching to the bone on netflix-it's good but not sure if you would count eating disorders as a mental illness.I like girl interrupted-the most but it's probably not very realistic.I've seen some other ones but can't recall them now.

About a boy, isn't necessarily about mental illness however, has some key characters and think you can gain some understanding.

What makes you think eating disorders are not mental illness?

Split, Life Itself (not really centered around mental illness but it's a really good movie, ignore the bad reviews), Identity, Shutter Island, The Machinist (i couldn't finish it cus it was too eerie and weird for me... you might like it tho)

Good anime: PERFECT BLUE (10/10), Monster (but it's a series, it's quite long too... but it's my favourite anime & is honestly a masterpiece), Serial Experiments Lain (again, a series)

I tried watching monster-the anime series, but I didn't like the animation style or the characters.I looked at the trailer of split, but I don't like horrors.I'll look up the other ones you mentioned though

That's not about mental illness, that's a rom com-which I've already seen anyway...

I haven't seen it, but the Silver Linings Playbook is supposed to be quite good.

split really isn't scary/a horror at all. it's very focused around mental health & multiple personality disorder

I used to like things like that-I used to be a big fan of Adam Sandler but I no longer like things like that anymore-so no.
