Not only is mental health issues a stigma, it seems talking about it is one as well.
I am not a popular blogger in any sense. I wrote this piece in Medium in response to a friend’s posting that Uvalde shooting is a false flag event and that SSRIs are to be blamed in ALL mass shootings. I even shared it on a supportive FB writing group where an author reposts her book link every couple of days and still garnered more likes than I did (mine got none).
I stand behind my article and the supporting articles and research. We should not blame mass shootings solely on mental health or medications. There is a correlation vs causation issue. Instead, as a society, we should invest in healthcare and mental healthcare.
