They have the nerve to put me into this funny farm, then force me to stay? I'll show them. I'll show them all! Mheh mheh mheh! Oh! Who are you! Where did you come from! What do you want from me! What's that? You want me to tell you about menthol ilnesses? Oh, I'll tell you aaaaaaaaall about menthol illnesses... What's that? It's mental, not menthol? Oh, I'll tell you aaaaaaaaall about mental illnesses... Mheh mheh mheh!

You may think that all mentally ill people have the exact same mental illness. But you're wrong. I knew what you thought because I am psychic. Mental illnesses are extremely varied, but they are exactly the same in one regard: they are illnesses involving the mind. Realizing that is the first step to understanding mental illnesses.

Causes

Family Tree

A possible mental illness family tree.

There are obviously multiple causes of mental illness. There has been a focus on the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, also known as the Big Three. Each disorder is likely to have a different causation, but many disorders are related to at least one of the Big Three. Not "related" in the family sense though. That would be really cool though. I wonder how it would work out. Anyway, I shouldn't dwell on the causes any more.

Types of mental illnesses

As I've said before, mental illnesses are not all the same. Here are all the mental illnesses I know of. However, this is not a complete list, so you should take precautions.

Description Examples
Disorders usually first diagnosed in infancy, childhood or PUSSY adolescence. Don't laugh at my swearing. That's WANK offensive. Tourette's Syndrome, Asperger Syndrome
Uh...I forget this part. I should move on. Amnesia, Alzheimer's disease
Shubshtance-related disorders <hiccups> Alcohol abuse
I don't have a mental illness <Boom> Spontaneous Combustion
"I'm not a bad person. I'm a good person. I'm just a bad bad wizard." He said raising the gun to his temple. Paranoia
What's that noise! Don't you make a scene! Schizophrenia
Disorders that <sniffle> make your mood all won-<sniffle>-wonky...Oh, I can't go on... Depression, Bipolar disorder
Changing the subject for a minute, but I was born into the wrong body. I should actually be more pretty. Gender identity disorder
I can feel it coming on, oh shit I can't feel my thighs, who's mic stand is this, what colour is Thursday? It's my head, it's my head, it's my head. Robert Downey Jnr Syndrome
Can't...sleep...ing...disorders... Bart Simpson Syndrome
I can't go to the movies with you <to hot girl> as I really, really have to study <Exits,fast> The Shakti Shimmy Syndrome
Look over there! <shuffling noises> No, you didn't have a shirt on. What, do you think I have an impulse-related disorder! <more shuffling noises> You didn't have pants on, either. Kleptomania, OCD
The last group is personality disorders. I am better than people who have these. Narcissism

As you can see, I exhibit none of these.

Controversy

Main article: Anti-psychiatry

Psychiatry, which treats mental illnesses, is very controversial. Here is an example of a controversy:

Innocent: Why are you putting me in this asylum? There's no reason for me to be an asylumni.

Psychiatrist: A portmanteau of "asylum" and "alumni"? How cute.

Innocent: Well, I should actually be more handsome... But stop trying to change the subject!

Psychiatrist: You tried to change the subject, not me.

Innocent: I was going to stay on the same subject, but I got lost along the way.

Psychiatrist: Well, you won't get lost where you're going.

Innocent: I won't? Is that true?

Psychiatrist: Yes.

Innocent: Oh, goody! Please lead me there!

Psychiatrist: I will. Oh, I will...

<one hour later>

Innocent: They have the nerve to put me into this funny farm, then force me to stay? I'll show them. I'll show them all! Mheh mheh mheh!

Conclusion

MetroFreud

Proof that psychiatrists used to be cool.

Even though I clearly do not have a disease, the psychiatrists, or the "white-coats" as I call them, are convinced that I do. I tried to give logical explanations to prove that I do not have an "omni-disorder" or whatever they call it. Yet those incompetent white-coats put me in this room anyway. I really can"t believe them. Psychiatrists used to be cool, you know. Now they're just lukewarm. But nobody in the free world knows about these injustices. Someone needs to expose this- someone like me. Help me in my escape. Together we will take this entire building and free all of the other innocents they have in their clutches. Tonight there will be anarchy! Bang on the walls with me! Anarchy! Anarchy! Anarchy!

Meanwhile...

Psychiatrist #1: <running down the hallway> I heard something about banging on the wall. Let's set him straight.

Psychiatrist #2: There's no need to. He's actually banging thin air. And after he had such a nice conversation with it.

<pause>

Psychiatrist #1: Let's set him straight.

The two men enter the room.

Psychiatrist #1: We're here to let you leave.

The psychiatrists lead the patient to the door, but they turn back once they reach it. The patient is oblivious to the bait and switch and is still cheerful a week later.
