I was wonderin if in Amsterdam - where cannabis is legal and sold openly in street cafe's - If more people suffer from psychosis ?
where I live there's 80 flats housing about 200 adults
I know of 6 people with MH issues - which is 3%.
Agreed....Which is about right for severe forms of mental illness. If we were counting general breakdowns, milder depressions, general anxieties, emotional upset etc etc etc - then most, if not all the country is mad. This isn't to make comparisons; but those most severely afflicted with very severe MH experiences; I would say are a pretty small percentage.
Schizophrenia is 1 in a hundred - that accounts for 1% - count the other 2% as an assortment - of likely severely depressed.
I used a lot of drugs - no doubt the drugs contributed to things, exasperated things & made things a whole lot worse. Are they to blame & to cause for all the upset? - NO - I don't think so. The condition I have been labelled with - Schizophrenia - has not had sole cause in drug use. If that were true them the Millions of other habitual drug users in this country would all be schizophrenic too.
