How many people actually take IQ tests and have known IQ scores? It is not a test that is done in schools. Therefore, I would imagine that the IQ tests may well be administered after a person is in the mental health system. If so, correlation vs causation issues would make any conclusion pretty much worthless.

I know when I was in the state hospital system as a teen, I took an IQ test as part of the whole screening. It was the only time I ever took an IQ test and I don't imagine that has changed much in the US.

level and mental (ill)health?
