I don't know if certain diseases would be catagorized as viral, but didn't/doesn't syphilis and many other diseases cause this as well? There are
certain diseases/ viruses that can cause the brain to deteriorate, or the brain cells to die, and this would cause atleast some type of mental
illness, wouldn't it? There are even probably bacterial infections that could cause this. Or even bug bites. I would think that anything that can
mess with the brain, could cause some form of mental illness, even if in the slightest form.
