Winnie-the-Pooh's Characters Disorders


In 2000, the Canadian Medical Association published a report entitled “Pathology in the Hundred Acre Wood.” In it, each character from the Pooh books is diagnosed with a mental disorder. The tongue-in-cheek report was intended to raise awareness of prevalent mental health issues.
Winnie the Pooh has an eating disorder. He is addicted to honey. He is also impulsive and obsessive when it comes to honey, which he eats straight from the pot. Piglet has generalized anxiety disorder. He is always nervous or scared and has low self-esteem.  
Eeyore has depression because he is always sad. Owl has dyslexia and short-term memory loss because he often misspells and misreads words and forgets things. He may also have narcissism, as he believes he is wiser than the others. Tigger has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and bipolar disorder because he cannot sit still and rapidly switches moods. Rabbit has obsessive-compulsive disorder because he is extremely orderly. Kanga has social anxiety disorder because she is extremely overprotective of Roo, who displays symptoms of being on the autism spectrum. Christopher Robin has schizophrenia because his ‘friends’ appear depending on his mood.
