Psychological disorders are common in the United States as well as internationally. Most don't realize they have a mental disorder and that poses a problem. If we could treat psychological disorders we could stop a lot of suicides, murders and other violent crimes. Psychosis, if left untreated, is a major problem and causes issues that our society has yet to face. Well it's about time we did.
In order to understand violent crimes we have to look in the brain. Nearly 57.7 million people in the United States for the ages eighteen and above suffer from some type of diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. Depression: a psychiatric disorder showing symptoms such as persistent feelings of hopelessness, dejection, lack of energy, and, sometimes, suicidal tendencies. However it is not the deadliest 'killer'. Schizophrenia is a severe and debilitating brain and behavior disorder affecting how one thinks, feels and acts. People with schizophrenia can have trouble distinguishing reality from fantasy, expressing and managing normal emotions. Thought processes may also be disorganized. Those with the condition may hear imaginary voices and believe others are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts or plotting to harm them. When mixed with the delusions and social withdrawal can cause extreme violence and, depending on how severe, sometimes murder.
