Well, according to the buddha, everybody suffers from delusion. However, mental illness is usually a severe form of delusion outside the statistical norms, by say, 2 or 3 standard deviations. So, by definition, most people have to be ok. Who decides what is illness and what is normal? It's all statistics. When everybody is crazy, crazy is normal. The otherwise normal person would then be considered mentally ill.

Just wondering. I'm in the MH profession and I'm wondering why you mentioned this in your introduction. Anyone (suffering or not suffering from Mental Illness) can see things wrong in the world.
Anyway, Welcome! I'm a new member as well. There are a lot of good people on ATS.
