    Great article!! You sound like a scholar!!

    Yeah, I think my illness, schizophrenia, is more prevalently diagnosed in men…? Let me look that up, you’ve got me curious now… The men:women ratio is 1.42:1, which I guess means that for every two schizophrenic women, there are around three men with it.

    I hope you get loads of tips!!

    In my family mental illness is more serious in men. And very rare in women. The extreme cases are only men. And as I grew up with them I realise a major factor is they bottle up alot throughout their lives.
    Everybody needs attention love and care and they need to show the same. Just my observation.
    Great article!
