Indiana University researchers, found in 1996, more than 26% of adults said they had felt an impending nervous breakdown.
It is Up from 19% in 1957
• Another 7% had experienced a mental health problem, a question not asked in the 1957 survey.
• Both (26 + 7) = 33%
The people with the greatest RISK factors were:
Single, white, mothers with no education and no religious involvement.
Look at this demographic. What are their needs?
– Single Mothers need?
– White Women need?
– Mothers need?
– No faith community need?
Now look at the recommendations from the Professors who did the research.
– More money for crisis counseling agencies
– Nothing about marriage
– Nothing about religion.
– Is this Malpractice?
– Is it anti faith bias!
