Abstract:  本研究では自身を「メンヘラ」という語によって理解しようとしている学生にインタビュー調査を行い、彼女たちが自身のどのような経験を「メンヘラ」として語っているのか、そこで語られる「病む」こととは何かを検討した。協力者たちの語りからは、相手と“繋がりたいのに繋がれない”ことによる傷つき、そのような傷つきを抱えた中で感情にまかせて取ってしまう“行き過ぎた”行動が、「メンヘラ」として表現される「病む」ことであるとの示唆が得られた。先行研究においては「メンヘラ」等の語を用いてセルフ・ラベリングを行うことの否定的な側面が強調されているが、本研究では、困難や生きづらさを抱えた際に「メンヘラ」という視点が、自身を見つめ直す契機となることも示された。このような両義性を踏まえた上で、人々が自らの「病む」経験を語るため利用している「メンヘラ」のような言説と向き合っていくことには、臨床的にも意義があると思われた。
 “Menhera” is a slang term, a youth term, which is said to have originated on the Internet and is closely related to“mental illness”. In the past, studies on the subject of “menhera” have focused on the representation of “menhera” in manga and the tendency to use the word “menhera”. However, the actual experiences of the people who use the term have not been sufficiently examined. In this study, we interviewed students who were trying to understand themselves by using the term “menhera” and considered what kind of experiences they were talking about as “menhera” and what “illness” they were talking about. From the narratives of the participants, it was suggested that the hurt caused by not being able to connect with the other person even though they wanted to, and the “excessive” actions taken by the participants due to their emotions during such hurt, is the “illness” expressed as “menhera”. In previous studies, the negative aspects of self-labeling using words such as “menhera” have been emphasized. However, in this study, it was shown that the perspective of “menhera” can provide an opportunity for people to rethink themselves when they face problems and difficulties in their lives. In light of this ambiguity, it seems clinically significant to confront the discourse of “menhera” that people use to talk about their own “illness” experiences.
