It goes along with the general perspective on mental illness. Most people think that someone that has a mental disease is locked up in the "looney bin" somewhere and every thing is ok. Most don't understand that mental illness is much worse a problem than we think. It can be any thing from PTSD, depression, anxiety, OCD or worse. We need to learn how to look out for mental illness and how to get those in need help. It shouldn't be taboo, and people with mental illness shouldn't have to suffer in silence.
