  • This is obvious people who are picking no literally have a mental illness yet they don't realise it which is why they make stupid decisions

  • Mental illnesses have real scientific explanations, like an imbalance in chemicals in the brain, trauma, etc. They are just like physical illnesses there is a biological reason people experience them. So unless you want to debate against science and facts, vote yes!

  • https://www.healthyplace.com/blogs/breakingbipolar/2011/04/biological-evidence-for-depression-mental-illness-exists/ Reputable studies have shown that depression is a biological illness. It's just like heart disease or diabetes. The only difference is, people seem to think that "well, we all feel sad sometimes. People just need to snap out of it." Nobody would say such a thing for a heart disease. People would argue that heart disease isn't a choice, but, well, neither is depression. When a person's brain does not produce enough of a neurotransmitter, they are physically unable to feel happy, regardless of how happy they "should" feel however their life is going. Take this from a personal sufferer of depression and who has seen friends go through remarkable transformations when placed on the correct medications that alter the balance of neurotransmitters: mental illness does exist, and it is a real thing. Why else would a teenager attempt to end their life when the rest of their life was perfect?

  • There is no concrete evidence of mental illness. By that, I mean that there have not been any conclusive, valid studies that show that there is any neurological or physiological abnormalities in people with mental illnesses - yes, that includes the "chemical imbalance" myth. Mental illnesses are behavioural symptoms diagnosed on opinion, not medical testing.
