Hi all,

Can someone help me identify this....

My girlfriend (a 19 year old college student) has me worried. I think she has some mental illness, but I have no idea as to what it could be, and I'd like some opinions.

First of all, she is usually depressed, she doesn't exactly soacially isolate herself, but she doesn't make a lot of attempts to make friends and what-not. Sometimes she will think that things are out to get her (not physically, but she'll ...

I'm wondering what the correct title is for a certain type of behavior. Let me illustrate what I'm talking about with a made up scenario:

The mother finds herself offended that her advice isn't being heeded willfully by her daughter. By giving a heart-to-heart recommendation, as opposed to a barked order, she has made herself vulnerable to ...

Yeah. I really hope school gets better soon.I cried about last night, in ...

Mental illness and culpalibilty


I was wondering what some of your thoughts were on mental illness and crime and more importantly the moral culpability of a sick person who committs crime. I remember watching on tv a while ago an Asian student who walked into his class and killed several fellow classmates. At the trial it was established the student had been suffering delusions of persecution (paranoia) and was eventually set free. I was quite shocked.

It got ...
