You brought up an incredibly important point. As someone with a Masters in Psychology, I feel that it's important to address the pink elephant in the room. Most people with mental health problems do not pose a threat to themselves or others. Only a small amount of people struggling with mental health problems are violent. Yet, it seems that when white men commit a heinous act, they always throw around "mental illness" as if every illness will make someone commit murder. It's ridiculous and the scapegoating has to stop. Thanks for being a powerful voice on these issues.
