I am afraid that this is what many have already said, that research into mental health is far less than other physical conditions.
I fully support research into all conditions both physical and mental, but they have to be given equal standing. Although there are many conditions that are life threatening and need new research, many with mental health problems resort to suicide because of lack of treatment or support.
Some of the problem is that there is still a stigma attached to mental health. Some still think that if you are mentally ill, you are a knife wielding psychopath. This isn’t true, those who show violence are often frustrated with themselves and not others.
Mental health problems are like computer viruses. You can’t see it, you might not even know something is wrong on the outside, but inside, it is trying to change the way your computer thinks, what it does. If you don’t do anything about it, your computer becomes paralysed and unusable.
Let us get some money into more research.
