Numerous scientific studies around the world indicate that a significant proportion of people carry an outdated, negative picture of psychiatry and mental illness. Still, the mentally ill is seen as a failure, unable to cope with the challenges of life; which is inherited as such. Social reasons are often neglected, which make some people unsuccessful and therefore develop mental disorder. Poorly informed people put patients under a common denominator. They do not distinguish mentally ill from psychosis from the one with weakness or severe depression, not to mention the many patients with functional, neurotic disorders. All mentally ill cause are feared, so they are avoided. All over the world, everyone would prefer to be physically ill, but no-mentally ill.
