What's "wrong" with mental illness? Nothing! The question shouldn't be what's wrong, but what's right! What's right with "mental illnesses” might be a strange statement for you to hear, but not for me. Why is that? "Mental illness," I realize, is nothing more than psycho-social warning signals from the Earth that affects 1 in every 4 Americans every single year because of our social ills and no one is immune. “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” ― Jiddu Krishnamurti
A physiological issue, connected with our social issues that connects to a car: Compare the social ills I’m discussing to the “ill” warning signs of a vehicle; the check engine light goes off, the ding! ding! sound warning you to put your seat belt on, or that loud unusual putt, putt, sound emanating from the motor, indicating that something needs to be looked at or you need your safety belt on. Psychologically, these are all warning signs from a car to you as the driver.
"Service Engine Soon!" There are environmental warning signs, too. These signs are social in nature. They affect a person’s psyche namely the "mentally ill." Not sure about that, think depression.
Hence, the union between psycho and social to form the psycho-social connection. If a lifeless object such as your car can warn you of certain issues, why couldn't the Earth, that is more intelligently designed, be able to the same to you? It does, only those hearing the putt, putt, sound; those who see the check engine light; those not ignoring the ding! ding! sounds, they are what's "wrong" with "mental illness."
