Let’s face it; we live in a society that is filled with individuals that have mental illness issues. Mental illness cannot always be clearly differentiated from normal behavior. Distinguishing normal bereavement from depression, for example, may be difficult in the face of a significant loss, such as the death of a spouse or child. Likewise, a diagnosis of anxiety disorder in relation to a person's worry and stress regarding work is somewhat arbitrary, because most people experience these feelings at some time. The line between a person's having certain personality traits and having a personality disorder can be blurry. Mental illness and mental health, therefore, are best thought of as a continuum. Any dividing line is usually based on how long symptoms last, how much people change from their usual self, and how severely symptoms affect their life. With that being said, are these individuals truly getting the correct help that is required? Can the medical profession do more to keep individuals from doing harm to themselves or to someone else? Something has to change and it’s NOT by making more bureaucratic laws governing gun control. What are your thoughts?
