WHAT PROFESSIONAL MODELLING ENTAILS
Professional modelling is characterized by a public performance which involves fashion, fine art, body-part, glamour, promotional and commercial print modelling. Professional models are people who are engaged in public presentation and performance, with the aim of promoting and advertising a commercial product, business and other related purposes.
Models are typically regarded to be quite different from other public performers. They are not to be collectively characterized as the same with other public performers such as the musicians, dancers, actors amongst others.
MENTAL DISORDER AND ITS CAUSES
When it comes down to professional models and mental disorder, mental disorder as implied, can be said to be an abnormal state of the human mental capacity which can otherwise be called insanity. It is a behavioral or mental pattern that may cause suffering or an inability to function properly in life.
Mental disorder is not stereotyped to a particular cause, as there are various triggers. Excessive thinking propelled by an inability to share one’s thoughts when depressed, can be the cause of a person’s insanity. It could also be the excessive intake of some drugs and drinks such as cocaine, Indian hemp, caffeine and the likes.
THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MODELLING AND MENTAL DISORDER
Models are featured in various media platforms such as newspapers, books, films, journals, television and magazines. The nature of the profession requires public display, and is open to public opinions and assertions.
In a situation where a model has done everything needed to go for a stage performance, and ends up getting negative feedbacks from any social media platform such as Twitter, such feedbacks could trend and it could portray the performance as not being up to standard. This could make the person emotionally disturbed, leading to an emotional disorder which would become a mental disorder in the long run.
Models could also be confronted and exposed to taking some drugs, drinks and other substances erroneously, that it becomes too excessive to the extent of leading to irrational behaviors.
HOW TO AVOID MENTAL DISORDER AS MODELS
As much as modelling can involve emotional depression, it also depends on the individual in question, and how well the person can handle emotional distress. In such situations, the person only needs to take them as corrections and work on becoming better in the profession. In the case of exposure to drugs and drinks, moderation is advised in carrying out such activities.
