RnKris84: Mental Illness is real. It's not just in someone's head. It doesn't just go away.
Having worked in a mental hospital I can say that these people are just that. People. They have feelings and emotions just as we do. The sooner mental health is taken seriously, they can get the help and medication that they need.
I pray for those who can't express the pain they are in. Friends and families really pay attention to those who are in pain. Mental, emotional or physical. Get them to an ER right away. You can be the first step on the road to management for one person.

Thank you Nun for bringing this important, yet, overlooked disease.

chickabooms: that's because humans aren't supposed to live like this...go go go ..24/7 ...everyone so busy being part of the corporate world and keeping up with the Jones or worse... they just stop caring because it hurts to. this lifestyle we enjoy is only a couple hundred years old.. and in last half century...families dont stay together or they move for work...breaking up what used to be considered family life style..throw in a few sharks..and ya.. l loved this man .. he was truly an empath

Sangria_: Googled his work:

Patch Adams is best known 4 his work as a medical doctor & a clown, but he is also a social activist who has devoted over 40 years of his life 2 changing America’s healthcare system. He believes that laughter, joy & creativity are an integral part of the healing process & with the help of friends, he founded the Gesundheit Institute in 1971 in order 2 address all the problems of health care in one model.
The Gesundheit Institute, a non-profit healthcare organization, is a project in holistic medical care based on the belief that one cannot separate the health of the individual from the health of the family, the community, the society, and the world. Our mission is to reframe and reclaim the concept of ‘hospital’.

In 1999, Hollywood released a film about my life called Patch Adams. I agreed to do this foolish thing because they promised to help us build our hospital. The film made hundreds of millions of dollars—but we made no money from the film.
