People be advocating for mental health awareness till their face turns blue
but as soon as mental health plays a factor in a crime case; people quickly disregards the whole mental health awareness things. Saying things like
“I have ___ and I don’t around killing people”
Well yeah because you’re not that person; therefor that argument is invalid since mental illnesses effects people in different ways; it’s not just basic text book of symptoms and behaviours; that everyone can relate to.
Im not saying that just because a person is mentally ill does notjustify what they did; However it does play a role; especially if the person was diagnosed before hand.
