Violence and Mental Illness

 

People often wonder if there is mental illness that causes violence. This is a valuable question to address because there is so much stigma.

It is important to note that most people with mental illnesses only hurt themselves. This is statistically proven and should be accepted by everyone.

There is so much maltreatment of people with mental illness that used to go on. Police are afraid of people that act erratically and often shoot them. This is unfortunate, but mental illness will make people behave with disregard towards authority because the person is paranoid or unable to follow commands.

Fortunately, a lot of the delusions people have do not involve violence. However, some people with extreme brain disorders like schizophrenia have been known to hurt people in the past. This is because they believe their delusions so profoundly that they might believe they are actually fighting off demons instead of people.
