It's No Wonder Untreated Mental Illness Has a Stigma

Who wants to be friends with and get to know someone who is totally psychotic? If they are properly treated fine, but otherwise, no. Maybe what we should do instead is to spend that anti-stigma money to ensure that they are treated and restored to sanity. Then most of us would want to befriend them and they would live longer with more fulfilling lives.
