Mental Illness Is Treatable

Dear Editor: “If you look at the mass shootings, it’s kind of all, connected to the issue of mental illness in one way or the other.”

John Kasich joined the pack of people who blame everything on a person’s mental status.

For shame! People then body slam everyone who deals successfully with their mental issues. Mental illness is treatable, like diabetes. Talk therapy is helpful. It is a private battle. People in therapy lead contributing lives and should not be discriminated against.

In no way should a crime, albeit it capital, be blamed on a person’s mental issues.
