“When it comes to mental illness, just 19% say the nation is making progress in dealing with the disease while 16% say it is making progress on prescription drug abuse. Significantly more Americans say the country is losing ground on these two problems (35% on mental illness, 37% on prescription drug abuse). Those are the most pessimistic measures for any of the seven public health issues included in the survey.”
UGH! DUH! This is just the beginning for mental illness to pop up as a major threat in the U.S. Other countries have already started to become aware of this illness. America is still waiting..
Waiting for an mentally – illed person to shoot up another school, perhaps..
My question is…what exactly are we waiting for?
Also, who are these “Americans” they talked to? Did they have a mental illness? Did they even know what a mental illness consist of? Were they insurance agents?
