In reply to How do you feel about the term 'Mental Illness'?, posted by SLS on November 15, 2017, at 10:03:34

I'd like to see a new term, but whatever term we use will always be stigmatized, since people are so uncomfortable with the fact that their sense of self is a phenomenon of their brain, and they have about as much control over its basic operating parameters as they have over their pancreas. We're just wired to be in denial of that reality, like we're wired to avoid feeling the reality of mortality. Being mentally ill is about as off-putting as being old and decrepit. It's an uncomfortable reminder of something most people would like to forget.
