NIMH · What Caused This to Happen?

“What caused this to happen?” is usually one of the first questions asked by patients and their families following a psychotic episode, suicide attempt, or manifestation of any serious mental illness. Modern scientists and clinicians point to a mix of genetic and environmental factors but these explanations are rarely satisfying and do little to stem the tide of guilt, shame, and blame that surrounds mental illness as much today as during the witch hunts of centuries past.

Dr. Insel discusses the idea that chance may have as much to do with the development of mental illness as do genetic and environmental factors.
