Is Mental Illness a Latter-Day Plague?
This forum question is part of our Peculiar Minds series.
Throughout preparing for the Peculiar Minds series I’ve been overwhelmed by the prevalence of mental illness. It really does effect a large majority of the population; statistics I’ve seen have put the number of people in the U.S. suffering from a mental illness as high as 50%. Think about that – it means that every person in America either suffers from a mental illness or loves someone with a mental illness, or both.
What is going on? Have there always been this many people with mental illnesses? Or is this a symptom of these hard times that are the latter days?
