Mental Health and Mass Shootings


It seems like every day there is another mass shooting in the news: Newtown, Parkland, Odessa, Dayton. And most of these news reports allude to the shooter having mental illness. But is this true? Common wisdom holds that someone must be mentally ill to do such a thing. But is it really that simple?

I don’t like when people label other people. In any facet of life. I have friends with significant Mental Health issues. They are the most peaceful people I know. It’s very wrong to label people.

Several respected psychologists put together a podcast on this issue. I think it’s educational and enlightening to hear what they say. If your interested follow this link to listen to the podcast.

It’s on a site called psychcentral.com which is a well respected site on Mental health issues written by people who are well qualified mental health professionals.

I found it to be enlightening, I would be interested in your thoughts!
