There is much yet to be learned about the mind and psychoses, which can be brought about by trauma and shock, mental and/or physical, or if and when under the influence of psychotropic or mind-altering drugs. The drugs that can affect the psyche can be "like" narcotics, but even prescription medications, or a mis-dosage (over- or under- dose) of any drug can cause psychotic episodes. That is why medical professionals, especially those responsible for "mental health" patients, must be so educated to determine, maybe only by the "look" in a patient's eyes, what medications, how much medication or other treatment is too little, enough or too much. A hairy profession, to say the least. But "mental health" patients are always in "critical" condition, even though some, a paranoid schizophrenic, for example, may be the worst and most hardened criminals in the world. Adolph Hitler was "mentally ill." But so were may men and women of genius, who had dreams...and probably the nightmares that balanced the logistics of their genius. The mind. Hairy, scary sometimes!
But, just FYI, psychiatrists and psycho-analysts, if true to the profession and considerate of their OATH to GOD, are aware of the differences...personality falls into play there. For example, a "schizo," who is suffering from traumatic or physical shock, reacts basically normally when on proper medications to ease their minds. They have "normal" aggitation levels, not unlike pre-menstrual syndrome or the way a "normal" person behaves in reaction to an illness or infection of the body. A "schizo," who IS A DANGER TO HIMSELF OR OTHERS (the "legal" determinant) agitates abnormally, unjustifiably. They are DANGEROUSLY MIND SICK PEOPLE.
Psychology, psycho-analysis and schizophrenia are fascinating subjects...but before a person passes judgement on the state of another's "mental health," they should be at least familiar, if not learned in the subjects or they could be BEARING FALSE WITNESS AGAINST someone innocent. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE STATE OR GOVERNMENT CAN AND WILL DO TO A MENTAL HEALTH PATIENT WHO MIS-BEHAVES AND JUST "SEEMS" TO BE A DANGER TO THE SELF OR OTHERS?! Minor example, a CONCENTRATION camp, or psychiatric ward...cost: approximately $60,000 for approximately 1 week...that is, if the patient is really believed to be innocent...It's the FED PEN or DEATH SENTENCE, if found guilty of some notable crime. But FACE REALITY...EVERY ONE THE PLANET is at least a LITTLE "mentally ill," or "emotional." REALITY. Can YOU define it? Intelligently?
What is Reality?
Starkness of reality is blasphemy, if a sacridity disturbs the peace in the dark, solumn silence of disturbances.
Yet, a fine line between what is, and what is not reality; which is left and not realized...starkly.
Because it would atomically split the sacridity of silence, and the stark reality left would starkly blaspheme the sacridity of itself.
That is the non-blasphemic, stark reality of God.

Here are the books I like on the subjects, for starters:
