"The freedom to be insane is a cruel hoax. Prepetrated on those who cannot think clearly by those who will not think clearly" - Dr. Torrey
"The stereotype of all people with mental illness as 'not able' is just wrong. No data supports this" - Bernice Pescosolido
Stated by a professor in the IU college of Arts and Sciences, he has said that many people are mistreating and judging harshly on the mentally ill. Not only with people with depression and self harm problems, but people with schizophrenia are also judged and mistreated by the public. Aside from this gentlemen protecting and stating the wrong, it still shows that the world does mistreat the mentally ill, to the point where someone had to speak out about it and show the world 'Hey! This is wrong!'
A key 1975 Supreme Court case reinforces those changes, with the court deciding that the state cannot confine a 'non-dangerous individual' who is capable of surviving in freedom alone or with the help of others
An example would be in the History of treatment for mental illness, in 1975, any laws have been pasted to give mentally ill people the right to an attorney and trail before they are put in a mental institution. And even before this law, many people did treat this as a serious problem almost as problematic as cancer and heart disease. This does not however, change the fact that, that a large number of people didn't either believed mental illness was a thing, Abused the system, and took it as the laughing stock of health problems for a large number of years.
