Nearly 40 percent of Europeans suffer mental illness


news.yahoo.com

LONDON (Reuters) - Europeans are plagued by mental and neurological illnesses, with almost 165 million people or 38 percent of the population suffering each year from a brain disorder such as depression, anxiety, insomnia or dementia, according to a large new study.

What would we do without people to help us realize how mentally ill we all are? As the definition of mental illness continues to expand, I expect there will come a day when it will include most all of us. I wonder if that 40% figure includes those who determine what defines mental illness. Then there is the financial benefit to big pharma every time more of the population is pronounced mentally ill. And one final statement: If they pronounce us all mentally ill and we let them do it and drug us and own us.... maybe they are right... we are retarded in some way.

And ? 45 and 90% of the rest of the world suffer in poverty and sickness.
Crazy people don't know they're crazy dude. Have you seen America's list alone ? Half the country is on Anti-depressants. I bet that number is higher, i've got relatives in New Forest, I know they're taking Anti-depressants, this is no surprise.

Well religious folks are mentally ill so I think 40% can easily be true.

Then we still have people that deny ignorance of course

Mental Illness = Traumatized Non-conformists.
Desired Outcome = Obediant Masses

LMAO! The title of your thread cracked me up, OP.


Jeez, if this is true of 40% of Europeans, it must be about 75% for Americans.....LOL (just kidding....kind of)

Yes, they want us to believe we're all nuts. Psychiatry has a long way to go before they'll ever get anything even half right.

I would imagine these numbers would go down if most of these people would stop taking a dozen psych meds and tranquilizers everyday.....just sayin....

Exactly what I was thinking when I read about this earlier, No wonder they keep coming up with new illnesses that make no sense. Have you ever looked up the symptoms of most diseases such bi-polar disorder? Well if you have you will realize we all suffer almost 1/2 of them and that's more than enough to put you on some lousy medication when your perfectly normal. Dumbing down society indeed.

I wish I could deny the ignorance of your post, but. . . .

Only 40%?

Hell we in America as by big pharma are "all" with some type of mental disorder
including our children, we all need some type of medication, remember the big deal during the Bush administration in 2004 trying to pass mental screenings for adults and children .
that was big pharma wet dream.
sadly right now most over medicated Americans are already on some type of medication for the mental "needs".

My daughter did some clinical in a nursing home, most of the patients were in anti depressant drugs, some didn't even knew what they were taking.

I think that big pharma eyes and profits are now on the EU.
Good luck.

People that believe in a God are no lesser to those that believe in UFO's mythical creatures and parallel universes.

Before I logged in to the site, the word 'depression' from the article was hotlinked to a shopping site. No joke.

Consume!
That new TV will make staying in bed all day with depression much easier to bare!

you might put it down to the have's and have nots in todays society, that for sure causes stress - i remember spain, many years ago, simple life, seeing horses and carts, and a farming way, village life, then about 20 years ago the european union announced that money was availabe for roundabouts, what i hear you say, well if u are ever driving through spain stop and see in any town how many roundabouts they have created, and what followed after the roundabouts was yep u got it your friendly local banker offering secured government finance for roads, and then wait for it ..our local friendly bank offering interest repayable loans for yep correct again cars, wow a nice new car hey.. and no when u cant pay and u get used to having it well .. u become sad, add too that credit ratings, and all the phone and internet gadgets.. and when there is no work.. u feel what -- yep sad again..in the old days it was simple just get a horse and make sure we can breed a few of them..

It's funny how often some atheists bring up religion.


Anyway 40% mentally ill? I guess it depends on perspective, what their definition of being mentally ill is different to what some people think when they hear the words mentally ill.

After logging out and checking again it appears to only be when on the ATS site... Not when I follow the link to the Yahoo article.

Mods what's that about?


Try it for yourself. Load the thread up when you are logged out, and in the article extract section at the top of the thread the word 'depression' is linked to a shopping website called Groupon.

Big pharma makes the red pills. They're called anti-depressants, some of these people have issues but these people on pills ? They're not too bad.

I wonder why they will not tell us the truth and say 100% of humans have a mental illness.
