> One other thing. Mood disorders have become much more widely accepted than in the past. Psychotic disorders are a different issue. When most people hear the term "mental illness," they think homeless people wandering the streets talking to themselves. Psychotic disorders are less common (so most people don't know anyone suffering from schizophrenia for example), much more disabling to those suffering and much more disturbing to people who encounter someone experiencing a psychotic episode.

I agree. There seems two worn routes popular thinking runs when thinking about psychotic disorders--the creative type like John Nash or Van Gough or the violent mass shooter (#thankstrump).
